I made these and well was not impressed. I cooked the cupcakes for 23 min. and they were a little dry. And the frosting, well it was a mess. I did as it said on the recipe, and it never got fluffy. It was a runny mess. I would like to see if anyone else had this problem.
Red or pink velvet cake is a cocoa based cake with vinegar in the ingredients. This is not really a true velvet recipe.
So many times I see wonderful cooks that have made some improvement suggestions on posted recipes if it didn't quite work for them. These responses above were quite harsh. Maybe they were referring to the texture as being velvet rather than the ingredients? Hope you find kinder souls to try out any recipes you post!
