I must admit - I have never had a red velvet cupcake before, but I decided to make some and see what all the fuss was about. Well, I am not super impressed. First, they are not very red, despite the entire bottle of red food coloring. They look more like a chocolate cake. Second, they taste like cake that doesn't have enough chocolate in the recipe. From what I have read, I actually think these have too much cocoa powder for the classic red velvet cake. I think I will keep looking for a better recipe. However, I thought the texture was great, the cream cheese frosting delicious and they were easy to put together. My hubby is happy - we are having biscuits tonight because I want to use up that buttermilk!
