Couldn't find the Martha Stewart recipe you were referring to (there were several when I googled it) so I went with the Paula Deen recipe (unaltered) for the 2nd try.....P-E-R-F-E-C-T results. The color, the texture, the moisture-level and the taste is exactly perfect.

I'll post pictures later.

Glad your cupcakes come out as you wanted them... If you google "martha stewarts red velvet cupcakes", it will be the first link... Just in case you ever want to try hers... Can't wait to see the photos...

I only have one muffin tin, so instead of making all cupcakes I took the last third of the batter and made a small cake with my heart-shaped pan I just bought. After icing it, I took one of the "dead cupcakes" from the bad recipe and crumbled it up, then laid a heart-shaped silicone shaper I have (for making pancakes) over the cake and.....voila:



Hubby says it's too pretty to eat, but he's already had 3 cupcakes!





I also made some decorated sugar cookies but I'll have to post pics of those later.

dangers of red food die - Google Search
If it was something we ate every day, yes. Not so much with an occasional treat.

I concur. If someone has a known hypersensitivity to artificial food dyes (particularly red) then yes, they should be concerned, but for most of us it's a harmless occasional indulgence. I do not eat candy or use processed foods that may contain the dye, not with any regularity anyway.

Still that's good information to have, thanks for pointing it out, Kayelle.

Best recipe for Red Velvet cupcakes (chemistry)? Before we go off on how you can't virtually taste the baked goods, I want to ask which you think would taste better, or which you would follow personally. Here are my options: [url=http://bakingbites.com/2005/08/she-wore-blue-velvet-but-ate-red/]Red Velvet Cupcakes Baking Bites[/url] [url=http://www.womansday.com/Recipes/Red-Velvet-Cupcakes]Cupcakes - Red Velvet Cupcakes Recipe from WomansDay.com[/url] [url=http://bestcupcakerecipes.blogspot.com/2009/02/red-velvet-cupcake-recipe.html]Cupcakes: Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe[/url] [url=http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/red-velvet-cupcakes-with-cream-cheese-frosting-recipe/index.html]Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe : Paula Deen : Food Network[/url] [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9cxBhTj9Nw&feature=related[/url] [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UXVqmM63fU&feature=fvwrel[/url] I tried this one today (came out dry, I yielded 10 cupcakes: [url=http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/red-velvet-cupcakes-3/Detail.aspx]Red Velvet Cupcakes Recipe - Allrecipes.com[/url] And I know to try out the cream cheese frosting/icing ontop. However, I've also been recommended Mascarpone frosting and purchased Mascarpone cheese to try it. I have one shot, and my goal is about 30-60 cupcakes. From speculation and elimination, which do you think would work best? 3 stars 1 reviews
