I used Paula's recipe, and it was fabulous. I didnt think it needed all of the red coloring... And, the recipe I saw used marshellow fluff, and that worked good. Both the cake and the frosting are amazing...

The cake tasted great, but I had a moment of confusion when i realized halfway thru the prep that the recipe never said when to add the vanilla (i added it at Step 6). I didn't have time to prepare a layered cake, so I poured the batter into a large casserole dish; well, what I didn't factor for was that this would about triple the cooking time! So no idea really how much time I saved or wasted doing it that way. I passed on the proposed Marshmallow Creme frosting and instead used Kittencal's White Chocolate Buttercream frosting (#130623). WOW! What a yummy pairing!

Awesome cake - and very moist. I have been baking red velvet cakes for years. Sometimes they would be quite dry, but still good. This recipe was very moist. I used my own favorite frosting recipe, but the cake recipe will be my new standby every time I bake one!
