Vegan red velvet cupcakes were a big victory for me. Since I started baking vegan, I was afraid to try this out because red velvet was my signature flavor for quite some time. Not one bump while baking these – you can imagine my delight. I’m just grateful for all the dairy alternatives out there that have helped me with this achievement.
