Red Velvet Cupcakes

Two recipes today to make these cute cupcakes. The first recipe is a standard mixture but the second is a little more unusual as it is made with red velvet cake mix, fat free yogurt, egg whites and water. You can use any flavoured cake mix – chocolate, butter, devil’s food cake, etc. as long as your boxed cake mix is 18.25 oz.
