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!

They look amazing Anabel. I'm not sure I've ever even tried red velvet cake as the amount of colouring always puts me off.

Gorgeous cupcakes, even if they did seem dry. I'm with you...use your favorite cream cheese frosting because that is the joy of red velvet cake.

They are pretty little cupcakes none the less! I can almost taste that cream cheese frosting from here. Yum!

Cupcakes are such a great idea! They turned out so pretty. My cake didn't turn out dry. I wonder what the different is between how they turned out.

Your cupcakes look so scrumptious it's not all surprising the disappeared! I'm with you on sticking with frosting recipes you love.

I love using black cocoa in recipes, which reminds me I need to order more. I have only ever made a red velvet cake once before, but I left the red food coloring out as I don't like the taste. I am tempted to try these as yours look so good.
