    Claire #3's Note:

    This is a beautiful, easy red velvet cake with a little more chocolate than other versions. Using a white cake mix gives you a headstart and assures a moist cake. Tastes great with cream cheese frosting.

      WOW! Velvety and delicious!!! I only used 1 bottle of red coloring and I thought the batter was a little dense, so I added about 1/2 cup more water/buttermilk mixed. Used this for a birthday, where there were 2 cakes -- this was eaten to the last crumb. One guy said "I usually don't even LIKE cakes, but this is REALLY GREAT!" Will definitely make this again.

      The grocery store was out of white cake mix with pudding, but they DID have red velvet cake mix! Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. 4 stars for my improvisation... a million stars for deliciousness. I made cupcakes and frosted with cream cheese frosting (recipe on 'zaar). Mmm mmm!!!
