Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These are barely worth the effort. These are barely worth the effort. The pudding mix made the batter super thick so it took a long time to pour into the muffin cups. There is enough batter for more than 24 cupcakes and also too much frosting (I'm using the leftovers as a fruit dip). The frosting is way too sweet. Also, the cupcakes just taste like plain, old chocolate cupcakes-not red velvet at all. They're acceptable, but one is enough because of the sweetness. They do look nice though-even without the chocolate curls on top (which are definitely not necessary as far as taste). Tip: check the cupcakes before the minimum baking time on the box. Mine were done four mins early.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These taste FANTASTIC! These taste FANTASTIC!!! Follow the directions and they are flawless. Instead of the white chocolate curls I decided to melt some semi sweet bakers squares in a ziploc. Snip off the end and made a chocolate drizzle over the tops. I also made some chocolate heart accents by lining a small cookie sheet with wax paper & drawing hearts with the melted chocolate in ziploc bag. Pop the sheet in the fridge for about 10-15 min., peel them off the wax paper and topped each cupcake with heart accents. You have to work fast b/c they do melt quickly at room temp. and body temp. (I used a rubber glove to handle the choc. accents). Pop the cupcakes back in the fridge & keep them stored in the fridge. My husband downed 4 of these in one sitting they are *THAT* good. :o) Here's a picture of what mine looked like afterward, these are sooo yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for Valentine's Day dessert for my husband and myself. I made this recipe for Valentine's Day dessert for my husband and myself. I didn't have time to pour out the batter in the cupcake pans, so I poured the batter into 3 loaf pans. Once baked and cooled, I used a biscuit cutter to cut out little "mini cakes." I cut those in half and frosted in between the two layers (to mimic a cake).I put a dollop of frosting on top and viola! It looked like a professional restaurant dessert. My husband who doesn't even really like cake said it's the best cake he's ever had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I chose to make this recipe specifically for the icing. I chose to make this recipe specifically for the icing. My hubs is a sucker for cream cheese and has never had red velvet cake. I made a 2 layer cake instead of the cupcakes since it was for his bday. The icing is delish, though! I don't like it too sweet so I decided to use only 3c of sugar and that may have been a mistake. The icing is terribly thin and I have had a hard time getting it to stay on the sides of the cake! Much better suited for cupcake use. Very very good flavor though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These were very good. These were very good. I used sugar free chocolate pudding mix and didn't notice any odd flavor. The cupcake was very moist. Unlike the other viewer, I didn't notice the pudding making the cupcakes taste different or have a different color. The icing was yummy, too (I also added some vanilla). However, they were pretty runny with the addition of cool whip so it might have been better to ice the cupcakes once they cooled. My icing ran down the sides a bit. Overall a yummy cupcake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this recipe and so did my friends & family! Loved this recipe and so did my friends & family! The frosting tasted so yummy. I think I used a little more than 4 cups of powdered sugar and it started to get too thick. I added a little milk and it came out nice, the cool whip just made it a little lighter which made it easier when piping the frosting. The frosting wasn't too sweet which was nice. The addition of pudding really kept the cakes moist!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First made on 2/14/10. First made on 2/14/10. This recipe was Great! I added some vanilla, used 1 and 1/4 cups of sugar and substituted cool whip lite in the frosting. Having made cream cheese frosting previously, I know it does not require 4 cups of sugar. I also used it with french vanilla and homemade red velvet cupcakes...YUMMY!!!! These are better than store bought filled cupcakes. The whole family loved them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for my dad's post Christmas party and they were a huge hit! I made these for my dad's post Christmas party and they were a huge hit! Everyone thought they were professionally made. Since I am not a skilled baker, I put a quart sized ziplock bag inside a large cup and poured the batter in & then cut the corner off & squeezed the batter into the cupcake liners - it cut down significantly on the mess. I'm making these again for a party in a few weeks.
