I have tried many supposedly good Red Velvet recipes as it is my daughters favorite, but every time they are too dry. I have heard this complaint a lot. This recipe, however, yields a dense, moist cake worthy of any professional bakery. I do recommend using a bundt pan. It seems to turn out a more consistent product. A glaze instead of this frosting is also nice, but this frosting is wonderful. Do not use butter or cake flour in the cake. It turns out dry.
