Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe

I got this recipe from the American Institute for Cancer Research's website. I test drove it over the holidays - two batches. I made one batch with whole wheat pastry flour and the second with gluten free flour and both turned out great.

The recipe makes a small amount of icing (about half of what the picture shows) but the amount is sufficient to add a nice sweetness to the finished product. I tend to like cupcakes over regular cake because they are portion controlled.

The recipe is a bit labor intensive so I don't know that I'd make them all the time but then we don't typically have desserts in the house other than holidays and special occasions so it works for us.
