Red Velvet Cupcakes

[Photograph: Yvonne Ruperti]

These super moist Valentine's Day-perfect cupcakes are topped with a luxurious white chocolate cream cheese frosting.

Notes: Don't skip the step of stirring the baking soda into the vinegar first, or the cupcakes will over-rise. If the frosting is too loose to frost, chill briefly until thickened.

This recipe is adapted from a recipe by Georgetown Cupcake.
