    Kimmie Kooks's Note:

    I made these using a mini cupcake pan and put them in egg grates. I took them to work and placed the egg cartons on easter grass with chocolate egg sprinkled around. They did not last very long

      Red velvets are an old southern standby, but I searched for a recipe having a butter base and scaled for exactly 24 cupcakes. Just as they came out of the oven, I had to give a taste test and these didn't dissapoint even warm and without frosting. I quote my dad frequently and as he would say...POIFECT!
