OK steve, i’m gonna give it to ya straight. i use an altered boxed mix for red velvet and people tell me it’s great. i don’t get the appeal of RV so i don’t know what it should taste like and i’m not a good scientist so i don’t know how to alter one of rose’s recipes

so here goes:

1 box white cake mix
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup buttermilk instead of water
oil (follow recipe on box)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp vinegar
1 small bottle of red food coloring

serve with roses white choc cream cheese frosting ( i do have standards after all)

good luck
jen

If you go to the Show and Tell section on the forum, you’ll find a thread for Red Velvet Cake. I’m pretty sure there’s a recipe there.

If you ever need another red velvet cake, go to the McCormick website.  It’s not especially moist but I always use a soaking syrup and it does the trick.  This is a well-behaved batter that bakes very evenly.

I just recently made this cake in a quad batch for the birthday of my BF’s boss.  It’s his absolute favorite cake.  (But no pressure.)

Not being a huge cream cheese frosting fan, I opted to frost my brother’s red velvet wedding cake with vanilla mousseline.  It was perfect!

I could eat cream cheese icing straight out of the mixing bowl (but refrain from such behaviour…most of the time) but I’d love to give the mousseline a try.  What else would be a compatible cake??
