Moist Red Velvet Cupcakes
September 01, 2008

I had never made red velvet cake before so I just picked this one at random. I made it for a poker party and brought the rest to work and everybody really liked it! If I were to make it again, I probably would cut the cocoa powder. It seems like it had too much of a chocolate taste (not bad, but just not what I think of when I think of red velvet). Most recipes usually call for a couple tbsp so this one is a lot more. this is the cream cheese frosting that I used for the cake: 1/2c. of unsalted butter (softened) 2- 8oz. packs of cream cheese (softened) 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar 1 tbsp of vanilla extract. After tweaking, I find that this is the best frosting for me. Not too sweet... just sweet enough. enjoy!
