These are just okay. They look beautiful and I may use this recipe if I only needed "set dressing", but I don't think I will make this again becuase they were only okay...not bad, just no wow! I selected this recipe because I couldn't find buttermilk to make a real red velvet. My first clue should have been the amount of cocoa powder it requested...I normally only use about 2 Tbs, not 1/2 cup, they were also very dense like a poundcake but moist. Once again not a bad thing but not what I look for in a red velvet cupcake.
So over all, it tasted average, was too dense and too much cocoa to be a good Red Velvet...but they were very pretty and stayed moist.
This might be good for someone just learning how to bake since it was very easy to follow and you could take your time making it.
