Deliciously moist red velvet cupcakes are an all-occasion favorite. The cream cheese frosting is so delightful, you might want to make a double batch to pile high on top. These have a full flavor taste that even kids will love, but have lower calories & fat by switching out buttermilk with 2% milk and lemon juice.
