As I did a couple of years ago, I've been baking for the local class taking PLTI. Tonight for their snack, it'll be red-velvet cupcakes. I used this recipe for the cupcakes and this recipe for the frosting. To be honest, I don't get the passion for red velvet, but that might be because I've poured a small bottle of red food dye into an otherwise nice cake batter. I will say that these cupcakes turned out surprisingly good. While the batter was fairly thick, the cupcakes themselves are light and moist. The frosting is a little underwhelming, but I think that represents how I feel about cream-cheese frosting in general.
