But they’re done now! And I have the wonderful pleasure of eating them after the hard work.
I had to search a bit for a Red Velvet recipe sans sour cream and white vinegar because I don’t have both and I wanted to work on a budget. (Also I had no clue what I’d do with the remaining white vinegar…)
Here’s what the original recipe looks like:
This is the full recipe, but I chose to half the original because i didn’t want to end up with 2 dozen cupcakes… That’s too much cake. 🙂

Overall, I found the cake part is a bit dry and the sweet moisture of the cheesecake frosting saved this from just being too dry. All in all, a nice combo. (And I got the thumbs-up from my family. :D)
