Red Velvet Cake

This player is created by Blackwell Team for testing.

Red velvet cake is a celebration mainstay of the South and now, everywhere else. What makes this version so tantalizing is the smooth cream cheese frosting.

Will not use this recipe again.
This cake was delicious!! We loved this so much everyone had seconds and thirds - there was nothing left. I added mini chocolate chips to the cake and it added a little more chocolate to the taste which everyone enjoyed. I also only added half the amount of red food coloring and the cake turned out plenty dark. Can't wait to make this again.
This was very good, especially the frosting. I cut each cake in two to make a 4-layer cake, and doubled the frosting mix. It was incredible! You definitely need to add a lot of red food coloring to make the cake dark enough though.
Very moist and great flavor!
Good flavor! I just wish the color was more on target like the cake in the picture. My cake looked more like a deep pink, not red.
so easy and tasted great
Made this for someone else. Made at night, and gave it to them the next day. It was still very moist and delicious!
It turned out very good. My husband truly enjoyed it.
I had to make 2 B-day cakes for the 11 B-days we celebrate in March. I was looking for a different chocolate cake recipe. One that was easy and would delight my family of many ages. I saw this recipe and it was very easy to make. The frosting was a great hit and also very easy to do. The B-day party was the next day and the cake was refridgerated over night. This not not in any way compromise the delight we had when we tasted this treat. The frosting held it's shape and texture. I believe the cream cheeese was the answer to the frosting. I dusted the top of the layered cake frosting with cocoa. The left over pieces were just as delightful as the first bite. This will become one of our favorites . I received many compliments and I credit them to you. Thanks Joyce
For using a box cake mix this cake was awesome. I didn't have any baking chocolate so I used cocoa powder instead, it turned out so good. I also used a store bought buttercream frosting and it was also very good. You have to add almost a whole bottle of red food coloring though to get the traditional red velvet color. For a box mix I think this is as close to the real thing as it gets.
