AWere they underbaked? Did you check the expiration date on the box? The baking powder and or soda may have expired.

Thank you.  Some one else posted a reply sugguested I may have first I thought no, until I broke one open and it was a little wet in the center.  Funny thing though, I inserted a tooth pick in the center and it came out dry...I will try again..As far as opening the oven door, I did open prior to finishing baking to check on them...I will put all this info together for the next red velvet cupcake experience.icon_biggrin.gif
