Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

A real Southern classic, red velvet cake has just a hint of cocoa and a deep red crumb. True to tradition, these party-worthy cupcakes are topped with rich cream cheese frosting and are embellished with a sprinkle of toasted sugared pecans.

Red Velvet Cake--amazing!
February 11, 2015
Instead of cupcakes, I turned this recipe into a 9 inch round cake. It was fabulous! I've never had red velvet before, and I'm NOT a cake eater, but I couldn't stop eating this! I added a tablespoon of Red Velvet Emulsion oil and a couple extra tablespoons of cocoa. Those additions added a little bit more flavor. I topped it off with a marshmallow cream cheese frosting. It was awesome. My cake was devoured quickly and I got a ton of compliments on it. This will be my go-to red velvet recipe!
Pros: Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Best Cupcakes I've Ever Made!
January 15, 2015
I was looking for an easy cupcake recipe to make on a lazy Sunday. I tried these, and WOW. My husband is not a sweet eater. He had 4 (not at once, haha). The candied pecans on top are a great contrast in texture, and so easy to make. The cake was moist and full of that silky chocolate flavor key to a great red velvet. The icing was creamy and just the right amount of sweetness! These are now my go-to cupcakes and will become a staple in my kitchen.
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again

Tasted great but not very red
August 4, 2013
This recipe definitely produced the right flavor and yielded 24 large cupcakes. The cupcakes were very moist, but turned out to be light brown. I would perhaps add liquid food coloring or increase the amout of red gel the next time around. The frosting was great.
