Bake and cool as directed on box for 8-inch rounds. Slice each cake layer in half horizontally to make a total of 4 layers.

In medium microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips uncovered on Medium (50%) 4 to 5 minutes, stirring halfway through microwave time. Stir until smooth; cool 5 minutes. Stir in frosting until well blended. Place 1 cake layer, cut side up, on serving plate; spread with 1 cup of the frosting. Repeat with second and third cake layers. Top with remaining cake layer, cut side down; frost with remaining frosting.

Someone told me that red velvet cakes were hard; but after I found this recipe, I make it frequently. It has a good flavor and looks pretty when cut. Enjoy.



1 pkg fudge marble cake mix
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 &frac; cups buttermilk
1 bottle red rood coloring
1 tsp vanilla extract

5 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

In a mixing bowl, combine contents of cake mix and baking soda. Add eggs, buttermilk, food coloring and vanilla; blend on low until moistened. Beat on high for 2 minutes. Pour into two greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire rack to cool completely. For frosting: whisk flour and milk in a saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cover and refrigerate. In mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugar. Add chilled milk mixture; beat for 10 minutes or until fluffy. Stir in vanilla. Frost between layers and top and sides of cake.

Use a box of German chocolate cake mix with pudding in the mix; make the cake according to directions on the box but add 4 tablespoons of red food coloring. Frost with a can of cream cheese frosting! Enjoy. I've been making my red velvet like that for years (forgot where I got the idea from).

Do you have a recipe for making red velvet cake from white cake mix?

Best Answer

1 white non pudding cake mix
1 3.5 oz package non instant chocolate pudding mix
approximately 1/2 cup buttermilk
red food coloring as desired


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix as per package directions, substituting buttermilk for half of the water called for. I use sour milk when I don't have buttermilk. Stir in the dry pudding mix, and the red food coloring.( I use about 2 Tbsp.) When the batter is as red as you want it, pour into pan(s) and bake according to the package directions.

There is a new red velvet cake mix on sale now that tastes exactly like a "scratch" cake, if you add the vinegar and cocoa from the original recipe to the cake mix. My son never noticed a difference.
