    This is a non-chocolate version of red velvet. Different, rich, moist and delicious!!! I prefer it over the chocolate varieties.

      Absolutely perfect! I hate chocolate, but wanted a red velvet layer in my wedding cake. The baker used your recipe and it was moist and wonderfully delicious. Thanks for helping me make my day extra special!

      This cake is absolutely delicious! Moist and rich, I love the cake part, but I substitute butter cream frosting for the cream cheese. Yummy!
