I made these for Thanksgiving and they turned out amazing! This is the first time I have made red velvet cupcakes and I was extremely pleased. I didn't use the recipe for the frosting. I went with a traditional cream cheese frosting. I piped a small amount of frosting so it wouldn't over power the cake. Next time I may try the white chocolate recipe suggested.

DEVINE!!! Red Velvet tends to be a dry cake. These are mosit and very dense. The White Chocolate Amaretto Frosting is just to die for. I made these for a party at work and everyone just went on and on about how good they are. So much so they want me to take orders! Super easy to make. Just follow the receipe. The icing sets up nicely and does not melt down. I just added some white choclate chips to the top. I also used Nestle white morsels chips instead of the bar white chocolate. Came out just fine. Make these today!!!

Oh my gosh, these are so good! I made a half batch (made 8 cupcakes) as it's only my husband and I. I made plain cream cheese icing as I didn't have the ingredients for the white chocolate icing. I did put some chopped, toasted pecans on top. Best red velvet cake ever.

Does anyone know where to get the glitter snowflake cupcake wrapper? I've looked everywhere, online and in stores! Recipe turned out great!

The cupcakes were too dry and didn't have a "from-scratch" taste to me and my mother who are critical of our cooking. However they were a hit with coworkers. I was looking for a denser, richer, more chocolate-y cupcake. The icing was fantastic and I did not use the almond extract. I had plenty leftover icing the 22 cupcakes it yielded.
