THE FIRST TIME I EVER HAD THIS CAKE IT BLEW MY MISBELIEFS THAT CAKES ARE JUST DECORATION AND SWEETNESS. RED VELVET IS A CAKE THAT WILL FOREVER BE REMEMBERED IN MY FAMILY!

I'm not sure what cake mix the prev. person used, but you have to use a quality cake mis with any recipe. i would not dare use a cake mix that stats "just add water" Regardless, I love this recipe! I make it for my family and co-workers all the time, and even my husbands friends request that I make them one! I will continue to use this recipe for making this cake. Thanks Kraft for making a difficult cake easy to make and very good!

I bought a white cake mix that only said "add water". I added the red food coloring and baking chocolate as stated. The cake came out flat and spongy-rubbery...it was embarrassing when I served it at a Christmas party recently. The recipe ingredients do not state eggs and oil but the instructions do...so that made it confusing. I baked the cake according to the instructions from the box..."add water". It was a disaster! I rather make "Red Velvet" cake from scratch...rather than taking short-cuts! It's worth the effort.

This is not even close to red velvet cake..the real red velvet cake is a moist red cake not overpowered with cho....... the icing is a cooked flour and milk base, beaten with butter and sugar. very creamy and smooth. Sorry it is a good cake but not red vel....If you have the real thing you will understand...

This is a nice short cut, but its not the orginal icing. The REAL red velvet icing is cooked. Milk and flour on the stove first and then add it to your sugar/butter mixture. Takes practice to get it right, but this one works well too.

The cake comes out well. I prepared white chocolate-cream cheese frosting and added chocolate curls to the top of the cake. Served it for a "Tea Party" and it was a HIT!

Delish! My cake cracked and crumbled so it wasn't as pretty as the picture but it tastes yummy! I used super moist cake mix so I don't know if that had anything to do with the crumbling but I will make this one again. We all love it!
