      I've made this cake 4 times since I found your recipe, but I didn't use food coloring. I used 2/3 cups pureed beets. I also wanted more of a chocolate flavor so I used 1/3 cup good quality cocoa powder. This cake is AMAZING!!! My family loves it! The frosting is real good too, I was unsure at first about the marshmallow, but it's really good. Tonight I'm making your cake with your frosting in between the layers and white chocolate ganache on top. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      This is sooooo good! I saw mediocre reviews for many red velvet cake recipes on the net and decided to go with this one and I'm so glad. It is moist and flavorful. The frosting is creamy and the marshmallow makes it a bit lighter than regular cream cheese frosting and it is fabulous! I added an extra tablespoon of cocoa, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I will make this cake again and again.

      I made this recipe as a sheet cake, using just a 9 x 13 glass dish, and I lowered the temp to around 335 F, and baked it longer. I used all-purpose flour & cornstarch to make my own cake flour. I also made my own buttermilk using milk & vinegar. Look up the directions on the internet. It's two ingredients that I didn't have to go out and buy! Although I did have to go to our craft store just to get the Wilton food coloring. The end result was DIVINE- everyone LOVED it, light and delicious with the frosting.
