LOOKING for: Question about Red Velvet Cake

Posted by kimc444 (My Page) on

I was watching the Food Network today and Paula Dean's sons (can't remember their names) went to this bakery where they made red velvet cupcakes-- they looked delicious! I thought this was a fun twist on just the cake and cute for Christmas time too with the white icing and red and green sprinkles!

So my question is, can I just use a red velvet cake recipe to make the cupcakes, or is there anything you would typically adjust when making cupcakes from a cake recipe?

Just bake the cake batter in cupcake pans....and adjust the cooking time....about 18 to 20 minutes should be least it would be in my oven.
