      After reading the reviews, I made this cake for my daughter's 5th bday party. I doubled the recipe. I was a lil nervous, but it came out awesome. Everyone loved it. The only thing I did differently was that I added 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and I made my own cream cheese frosting. Moist and delicious! When you warm it in the micro, the chips and cream cheese melt. YUMMY!!

      This was my first red velvet cake and it turned out great. I made it for my fiancé's birthday. Both him and my family just loved it. It was very easy and very good!

      My first red velvet cake and it was fantastic! I used a white cake mix, 5 large eggs since I didn't have XL eggs and lots of red food coloring. I also added a bit of extra flour and some water (for high-altitude baking.) Made cream cheese frosting from another recipe and topped with chopped pecans. Yummy! (By the way, this cake was made for a crowd of Southerners on Christmas and they all gave it their seal of approval.)
