“A delicous treat, even though these instructions are for boxed red velvet mix, you can make your own if you want to. You can also purchase the cream cheese frosting in most superstores. A tip that is very helpful is use alot of nonstick spray, these tend to stick to the pan, and let the cakes cool for a long time so they do not fall apart.”
12 cupcakes
