Yummy! I made this recipe but added about 6 Tbsp of raspberry jam and a handful of fresh raspberries. I iced it with a chocolate icing. It really amped up the flavor. Definitely going to make again.

LOVE this recipe. Made 2 dozen Valentine cupcakes out of it this week and they turned out perfectly. Super easy but tastes like you spent hours in front of the stove. A keeper!

Excellent! Used a red velvet cake mix,skipped the red food coloring. It was very moist and tasty and was gone before I knew it. 1

I had never even tasted a red velvet cake before...but decided to make one for my daughters 21st birthday because a friend of mine is always raving about them. This is the same recipe she uses and it came out great! This cake was easy to make and the frosting was awesome. Everyone loved it and it was super moist. I added some red sprinkles to the top, and some raspberries along the bottom and a few raspberries on the top...it looked beautiful!

DELICIOUS! This cake was easy, moist, and all our party guests loved it. It was my first attempt at a red velvet cake, but I will definitely make it again.

Being from a small town in Texas who's team colors are red and black, Red Velvet Cake is a tradition. The recipe my family has used always turned out a dense and dry cake. I'll never go back, this cake is a hit. It has all the flavor of the made from scratch without all the steps and its is moist and light.

This was fabulous! Couldn't believe how much it tasted like an orignal Red Velvet Cake. Made this for my DIL's birthday. She was fooled. Will make it from now on. Can't beat it. Thanks for posting.

This was the first time I've ever seen/tasted/made a red velvet cake. It was interesting, and well received, but no one was blown away by it up here in Canada (just not familiar with it). It also wasn't red-red the way I thought it would be, more burgandy. I used a devil's food cake as german choc. is hard to find around here, so that might have contributed. Nice light chocolate taste, and good texture though. Just not oh my god amazing...but certainly yummy!
