Beat sugar and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in sour cream, milk, food color, and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until just blended; do not overbeat. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full.

Once you've prepared the cake batter, it's time to bake these beauties. Preheat your oven to 350*F  and line 30 muffin cups with paper liners. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Pop them in the oven and let the magic happen. In just 20 minutes, your kitchen will be filled with the irresistible aroma of freshly baked cupcakes.

While the cupcakes cool on a wire rack, it's time to whip up the creamy and luscious Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting. Beat together cream cheese, butter, sour cream, and Vanilla Extract until light and fluffy. Gradually add confectioners' sugar until you achieve a smooth and velvety consistency.

 Spread the frosting evenly over the top of the cupcake. Try not to eat it while doing so.

So why wait for a special occasion to indulge in these Red Velvet Cupcakes? With their freeze-friendly nature and irresistible taste, they are the perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth anytime. So, go ahead, take a leap into cupcake bliss, and savor every bite. Your taste buds will thank you.
