Can I Make Purple Velvet Cupcakes?

Can I make purple velvet cupcakes? Or do I have to stick to red?

Yes, it is possible to make purple velvet cupcakes. All you need is some good food coloring! Keep in mind that since there is cocoa powder in the recipe, they will turn out a darker purple.

For this post, I made miniature purple velvet cupcakes. They are scrumptiously bite sized for easy consumption -- and they are adorable plated on a platter to pass around.
