"This is a delicious cake - not too sweet, but sweet enough. The frosting was sooo good! I didn't have red food coloring, so used purple -- interesting color. Heha! The directions don't mention where to add the cocoa in, and I almost forgot it -- I mixed it in at the very end before pouring batter into the pans."

If it was possible I would give this NO stars! Overloading an ordinary cake with red food coloring is NOT WHAT A RED VELVET CAKE IS!

This is a really good cake. I tested the icing before I used it because some reviews said it wasn't that good. Glad I did because it was a little to bland for my liking, but I added 4 oz of cream cheese and some more confection sugar and it was really good.

This was amazing! I loved the frosting without the cake! I made for my neighbors birthday and she loved it! I snook a piece too but it was worth it!

Very good cake, I didn't care for the frosting though. Next time I'll use a different frosting but definitely would make the cake again.

I can't comment on the cake; I used this for the frosting for hubby's birthday cake. I agree that the flavor is good, but the texture came out so greasy he had me dump it and find another frosting recipe. He said it felt like eating straight butter; I'm glad I hadn't put it on the cake yet!
