​Healthier Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes – the Bootique version

These are the super delicious red velvet cupcakes we made for the Bootique client appreciation party. They were incredibly moist, and a big hit! They are easy to make and lighter in calories due to the healthier substitutions we used.
