Red Velvet cakes are some of the most decadent yet delightful treats on the market, so I was inspired to try a healthified version of it. To make a cake or cupcakes, rather than balls – all you have to do is spread out in a lined cake tin and set in the fridge or similarly in cupcake pans for cupcakes!
