- 1/8 teaspoon Salt
- 3 teaspoon Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons Wilton gel Red food color or Beetroot color (liquid)

Assemble all the dry ingredients.
Measure sugar and butter/oil.
Vegan Milk should also be at room temperature. (see notes above)
Sift all the dry ingredients together.
Set it aside.
Preheat oven @ 350 degree F. In a bowl cream butter and sugar together. Add vanilla essence and food color.
Keep mixing. Add dry ingredients spoon by spoon alternating in between with milk and water. Meaning - add a spoon of dry ingredient + a spoon of milk + a spoon of water. Repeat the process till you finish all the ingredients.
Finally pour vinegar and beat it well. Vinegar needs to be added at the last. This creates a bubbly reaction (because of baking soda) and that will cause the cupcakes to rise well.

Pour and fill your cupcake liners 1/2 to 2/3 full of batter.
Place it in the hot oven.

FOR BUTTERCREAM FROSTING
Beat vegan butter for 5 minutes until light and airy. Butter will loose most of it's yellow color at this point. Slowly add powdered sugar/icing sugar (spoon by spoon) and beat until it is well blended. Add milk to thin out it's consistency. If you like you can add food flavoring at this point. Mix again. Icing is good for 1-2 weeks in your fridge and for a month in your freezer.
