Easy to make Pink velvet cupcake

Speaking frankly, I started out making the “Red velvet cupcakes”. The only thing I did differently was not using scary amounts of red food coloring that goes into this cake making it appear fabulously red n instead use a healthier alternative. I have used beetroot pulp to get the pink colour (sadly not red 🙁 ). So…that’s it, nothing more to complain here I guess. I ultimately landed up with this tasty “Eggless pink velvet cupcake”.

For a deeper pink shade, try replacing Cocoa powder with equivalent amount of all-purpose-flour. As I did start out making the Red velvet cupcakes, couldn’t bring this variation in my batter.

So here goes the recipe for Eggless pink velvet cupcake n butter cream frosting.
