A Lovely Valentine’s Gift for Your Love One | Super Moist Red Velvet Cupcakes – Red Velvet Cake is one of most people’s big time favorite, I am one of them. A delightful moist and soft cake with creamy cream cheese frosting, is heavenly. This cake is so moist, soft and delicious.

As usual, I’ve made one for the eggless version J For this frosting, I added 1:1 ratio of butter with the cream cheese to enhance the stability of the frosting and for the piping purpose. On top of that, it’s super delicious. It’s best suited as a gift for Valentine’s Day. I hope you’re inspired to make one for this season and for your love one.
