Red Velvet Cupcakes

It's time to bake again with the "Cake Slice"! Red Velvet Cake was my choice this month. I felt it was the perfect choice to bake in the month of Love! 

I already have a favorite Red Velvet recipe. I felt the curiosity to test this recipe which called for butter. I also tested the recipe using dark cocoa. 

The cupcakes turned out slightly dry, and really dark due to the dark cocoa! They almost didn't look like Red Velvet! It wasn't my favorite recipe, but I can't really say the cupcakes were awful! Just a slight dry and had a deeper chocolate flavor than you would normally detect in Red Velvet. 

I stuck with my own Cream Cheese frosting and skipped the recipe in the book. I love my Cream Cheese frosting so much, I just didn't want to take the chance with a new recipe! 
I took theses to the Super Bowl party I went to, they disappeared quickly!
