These gorgeous little red chocolate cupcakes are perfect for weddings, parties, anything! If you want to ice them try using this fluffy icing recipe.
If you dont have buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to a cup of milk. You can also use plain milk in this recipe.
I just finished icing these cupcakes, all I can say is that these are the most gorgeous cupcakes, very easy to make and very impressive. I used half of the cream cheese icing recipe from the Hummingbird cake and it was perfect. I will be making these again! - 26 Apr 2011
I've always wanted to try red velvet cakes and these tasted yum and looked beautiful, my supermarket didnt have buttermilk so i used normal milk instead, and they turned out perfect, I used the cream cheese icing which was delicious, the whole family loved them! Will definitely be making these again soon! - 31 Mar 2012
Extremely lovely cupcakes! They are so easy to make even an amature can do it. The only thing I did differently was at the end I mixed half a teaspoon of baking soda with one tablespoon of white vinegar and folded it into the mixture to help the cupcakes rise. I got this tip from another recipe. I frosted them with cream cheese icing and stored them in an air tight container. 6 days later they were still moist and yummy! - 17 Jun 2012
