Red Velvet works better with shortening. Trust me!

I got the recipe from cupcakebakeshop but I adapted it slightly and will do so again next time... they turned out a little dry (to me even though people love them) since the alcohol in the cupcake bakes out. Next time I'll use more butter or perhaps 1/3c oil. But the bourbon caramel is TO DIE FOR and I am already planning how to use it for other things!!!!
