Red Velvet

This sure was one RED cake! I found the recipe on a website after doing research on what a red velvet was. I assumed it would be more chocolatey in taste, but I couldn't be more wrong. It had a yellow cake like taste with its distinct red coloring. It does contain cocoa, but in a very minimal amount. The cake is popular with the Southerners. Typical frosting would be a butter roux icing, but I used cream cheese frosting and had strawberries added in between the layers.
The pictures show the deep red color achieved by using red food coloring.
