After following this recipe I realized that my first attempt (awhile back) at making these weren’t so great. I found another recipe online and I definitely like it this time around because it calls for double the amount of red food coloring; thus the cupcakes turned out a nice shade of dark, deep red. I decided to make these cupcakes again because a co-worker requested them and it was going to be my last day of work before moving on. These definitely were more work than most other cupcakes I’ve made, and more messy! I stained my hands and the counter with the red food coloring! Here’s a hint: mix baking soda and warm water together…it’s get the stain out!
