This is extremely easy yet wonderfully decadent cupcake recipe using red velvet cake mix that has been doctored up and a homemade buttercream/cream cheese frosting. When I make them, I have to hide a couple or I won't get any! Be warned; the batter is very thick. You haven't messed it up. Also, it makes a lot of frosting but as the frosting is so delicious, you won't mind having your cupcakes well covered :-)
