I made red velvet cupcakes using this red velvet cake recipe from Loveless Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee. This recipe makes a really nice traditional red velvet cake. The cake part uses cocoa so it has that burgundy-ish red color to it. It is moist and has a good crumb. The frosting is delicious also, but may be on the sweeter side if you prefer a more pronounced cream cheese flavor like I do. To make cupcakes, just put them in liners in muffin pans and bake for 20 minutes (test with a toothpick).
