I made these cupcakes today and they were incredible! I didn't have the fresh beets but had a can of beets so I put them in the food processor before mixing with the rest of the ingredients. They were the most chocolaty, moist cupcakes I have ever tasted and I have owned 2 restaurants. The frosting was amazing! The Tofutti cream cheese worked perfectly. This is a keeper. It was so easy, only took 5 minutes to mix and put in oven. From now on, any "bring a dish" doings I go to, I will be serving these delicious cupcakes. Thank you so much for sharing.

These were absolutely delicious! They were moist and chocolately, you don't even miss the eggs and dairy. My first grader was initially skeptical, but really liked them in the end. I would reccomend using a white cake mix if you want them to look red though. I used a Bob's Redmill gluten free chocolate cake mix since I couldn't find the recommended brand in Mississippi.
