Made these for my Son's Girlfriend and they were a big hit. She told me that they were the best she ever tasted.

Just made these. Whole family loved them, everyone had two! SUPER moist and the frosting is great, but pretty sweet, not that I am complaining. ;) Definitely would recommend these to anyone who loves red velvet! I had a compliment that was: "Usually in red velvet cakes, it just tastes like yellow cake with food coloring. I can actually taste the cocoa and the moistness is spot on."

My granddaughters favorite, I have to make them each year for her birthday. I get requests for them all the time from family and co-workers. Easy and oh so good. Nothing says "I love you" more than home made cupcakes.

you can make the same thing with the Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix or Cupcake mix without having to make them from "scratch", especially if you've been working all day.
