These gorgeous little red chocolate cupcakes are perfect for weddings, parties, anything! Use your favourite buttercream or cream cheese icing to complete.
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'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
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
