Red Velvet Cupcakes with Orange Buttercream Recipe

kept byClara52
recipe byMyRecipes.com
Notes: 

These electric magenta cupcakes get their color not from the usual food coloring but from puréed roasted beets, which also add a subtle flavor. Don't use canned or packaged steamed beets--the cupcakes' color will be drab.

Yield: Makes 12 cupcakes (serving size: 1 cupcake)
