      This is exactly what I was looking for. From Scratch, cream cheese icing and all. Perfection.

      My second attempt at making red velvet cake and this one was successful (the first one was too dry). I made it for a fund raiser bake sale so I wanted it to be just right. I heeded one commentor's advice to reduce the oil so instead of 2 cups, I added only 1-1/2 cups and the cake seemed moist. Next time I will experiment and make up the missing 1/2 cup of oil with 1/2 cup of butter. I did not make the frosting posted with this receipe. Intead, I made Kittencal's Best Cream Cheese Frosting (# 90142) and added 2 cups of Cool Whip--very creamy with a subtle cream cheese flavor - delicious! One last touch, I bought some good quality strawberries, cut them in half, then arranged them on top of the cake and around the base. Very attractive! It was the first cake that was sold and sold for more than the asking price.
