    I was a little intimidated to try this recipe, as I have not roasted my own beets before, nor made cupcakes from scratch! They turned out perfectly though, I didn't change anything. They were a huge hit at a baby shower, and although some knew they contained beets no one thought the flavor was off. Very moist and delicious!

    Great cupcake, the beets give this dessert a very interesting twist on the standard red velvet cake. The frosting was too sweet for our liking and would recommend cutting the powdered sugar by half. We may try a mascarpone spread, instead of the buttercream.
