      This is probably one of the best red velvet cake mixtures and I have one very similar. Also have one that is totally different to any here which I have posted. Thanks for reminding of this great recipe.

      This tastes pretty good, especially with since there is sour cream in it, however, you called for cocoa and then it's nowhere in the directions. I also don't understand why I had to line the pans with parchment, when I oiled them. The cakes fell apart because the parchment doesn't mold well to round cakes. Pretty good recipe since my husband can't eat vinegar.
