Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
These were amazing! I love making things from scratch and having them come out way better than any mix could do. I made these for Valentines day for my boyfriend and he loved them. I used the "1 tbsp of vinegar in a measuring cup and fill with milk to the 1 cup line and let sit for 5 min" thing for a substitute for buttermilk. It did make 24 decent sized cupcakes and I frosted them with white frosting.

White Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Don't be scared away from this recipe by some of the reviews! The people who said it doesn't turn out must not be able to follow the directions. I used more butter instead of shortening because I didn't have any and I only made a half batch of this and it was the perfect amount to generously frost 2 dozen cupcakes. It turned out light and smooth and was super easy. I admit that it does look terrible after only 5 minutes of beating but it really makes a nice transformation when it is done. I used the wire whisk attachment on my stand mixer and it was done by the time 9 minutes were up. I will be using this recipe again in the near future as its a nice change from the usual confectioners sugar icing
