Rated 4 out of 5 by SweetUkulele from Made Cupcakes Instead Made this recipie today for the first time, but made cupcakes instead of cake. I used Christmas red instead of red red, since that's what I had on hand and definitely did not use even close to 1tbsp. I don't think you really need to add that much to have a nice red color since I only used a toothpick to glob out a few small globs at a time and then mixed till I was happy. It didn't look that red as batter, but once baked it had a very nice color. Quite enjoyed the recipe! Would make again, but maybe make them a little less moist as I thought they came apart a little to easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by msendy16 from Great texture, moist, and good flavor. I added 3 Tb of cocoa instead of the 2 Tb called for in the recipe, and used 2 Tb of Red Coloring as I did not have gel. Recipe makes 24 cup cakes, baked for 20 min. rotating pan after 10 min. Frosting is very tasty but yields more than needed for 24 cupcakes. I could have gotten away with using 1 stick of butter and 1 pk of cream cheese with 1 1/2 tsp of milk and would have had plenty of frosting to pipe onto the cupcakes. Will definitely make again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Katy Cardenas from I made this cake...didn't even try to make the icing because the cakes came out flat as pancakes. I live in New Mexico, 5000 feet above sea level, so I need this recipe to include "High Altitude" instructions! Without them I Won't be wasting my time or ingredients on this recipe again!
