    Michelle Berteig's Note:

    My mom clipped this recipe out of either a newspaper or magazine. It is different than other red velvet cake recipes I have seen because it contains sour cream. I have tried several recipes for red velvet cake in the past, but this one is by far the best and is my new favorite. Enjoy!

      This is a FANTASTIC recipe! I recently made this recipe for Valentine's Day so I could have a fun treat for my family. This cake is SO moist and delicious; I will definitely be making it again.

      Thanks for sharing, Michelle!
