Red Velvet Cake III
August 20, 2009

I am not from the south, nor am I an expert on what a Red Velvet Cake is supposed to take like. My only experience with Red Velvet Cake is one lushious experience at the Claim Jumper Restaurant which prompted me to look for a recipe. I am an expert at knowing a delicious dessert when I taste one and this one is amazing! I added 4 Tbsp Cocoa as other reviewers suggested and 1 tsp vanilla extract. This was absolutely delicious. I did not use the frosting. Instead I made my own cream cheese frosting (1-8oz Cream Cheese, 1 stick margarine, 2 cups powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla). I made this for the office as cupcakes and also for my mother in law's birthday. Everyone raved about this and several wanted more than I had. I plan on making this for my niece's baby shower this weekend and can't wait to devour again. Thanks so much for a really easy amazing recipe.
