Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcakes is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Special Cupcake!! I made these for a wedding reception and got rave reviews. The only thing I might change is a little stiffer cream cheese icing. Otherwise, I will be making these again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for Easter and with my family being cheesecake lovers I wanted to change it up. This recipe is by far my families favorite. Next time I need to make more. Only thing I changed was I used my grandmas cream cheese frosting recipe and candied pecans. Made them for a Christmas get together with coworkers after. Love this recipe!!!!
