      I made this cake and baked it 10 minutes less which may have been why mine was moist and very tasty.. I have a recipe that uses vegetable oil instead of butter which I like better. My husband does not like cream cheese so I used my butter cream frosting recipe which is perfect because it is not to sweet. Due to the fact that ovens vary, I always start checking anything a little early..

      Excellent cake. It was quite dense, but the entire family loved it for Christmas supper. This was my first attempt ever at making Red Velvet, and I believe it was a success. Super easy recipe that is straight forward. I also used whole milk rather than buttermilk, so I could use it with supper :)

      I was dissappointed. Was hoping for a moist cake but it was dry and dense. The best part of this cake is the cream cheese frosting..delicious. Next time I think I will try a white cake mix and add the buttermilk and food coloring to get a moist cake and use the frosting recipe here.
