Do you have a recipe to go along with the picture of those red velvet cupcakes? I made some a little while ago and they came out more like pink tasteless boring.

    I actually do.  I made some last month and they were pretty darn good.  Even my FI liked them and he hates anything not steak of french fries.

    Thank you kindly. I'll give these another go. I think the recipe I used had waaaay less cocoa powder in it. Hence the lack of taste.

    taste the batter and you can add up to anoth 1/4 cup of cocoa if you'd like more taste.

    But but but I'll get salmonella from the eggs! That advice is very wise. Why did I not think of it? Tasting, will do. I would also like to suggest this [url=http://www.bonappetit.com/magazine/2009/10/fuji_apple_spice_cake_with_cream_cheese_frosting] Epicurious' Fuji Apple Spice Cake[/url] Major yums.
