Red velvet with cream chesse frosting

The other weekend my best friend and her boyfriend came to visit. They told me their favorite cake was red velvet and can you believe I'd actually never had or made it before. So I found a good recipe online and was very happy with the way they came out.....I'm now a red velvet fan :D

Red velvet cupcakes:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cocoa powder (feel free to add more, you couldn't even taste the cocoa)
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 tablespoons red food coloring (took me about 2/3 of a container of the gel)
1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

My cream cheese frosting recipe is in the pumpkin cupcake post :)
