Red Velvet Cupcakes

Tangy buttermilk and a hint of cocoa give these classic cakes their signature flavor, while the low-fat cream cheese frosting adds a decadent touch without all the calories.

Want to skinny it up even more? Skip the frosting for a 216-calorie treat.

Pro decorating tip! Pastry bags and tips are the secret to fabulous finishing touches. We love the ($8.39)—it comes with four tips and eight disposable bags.
