Red Velvet Cupcakes Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 16)

I was really excited to make this recipe after reading all of the great review's but I was disapointed once it was made... It doesnt taste that good, it mostly tastes like the cocoa power... The last time I had red velvet cake it was amazing and I think it had strawberry in it. If I do make this recipe again I will have to tweek it alot and probably add strawberry flavering somehow...

These are the best cupcakes I've ever had. They are phenomenally moist. I let the batter sit in the fridge for 24 hours- just because I was out of food coloring- but apparently it only made them better. I will definitely make again. My family loved them. Frosted with Janni's "Cream Cheese Frosting II" recipe. Perfect.

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!!

This recipe was okay. Followed the recipe, but it was a little bland. Maybe it'd taste better with some alterations? Might try it again at some point...

They turned out a little drier than I was hoping.

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!

Too salty and a bit crumbly. I used a heart pan for Valentine's Day thinking it would be perfect for Valentine's Day and it looked more like a chocolate cake.
