This was my first ever red velvet cupcake...and it was great! I made mini cupcakes, so I scaled my recipe down to 5 servings and ended up with about 16 mini cupcakes. I also used a food coloring gel instead of liquid, stirring it into the milk until the color was a nice rich red. The things i changed about this recipe were to use melted margarine instead of butter, only 2T of cocoa, and I had to reduce the baking time to 13-14 min for my mini sized cupcakes. They turned out beautifully! I melted 1/4 c of chocolate chips, put in a ziploc bag, cut off a small tip, and squeezed heart shaped designs onto wax paper and then froze. These made the cutest toppers for valentine's day!!
