I made this cake for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day this year. He, his mother, and his friends LOVED it! It was my first time making a red velvet cake and I am very happy it turned out successful! I used the Special Buttercream Frosting for this recipe instead of the recipe for frosting that was originally provided.
I have a few comments on making it though. If you don't have buttermilk on hand, I suggest adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar to 1 cup of milk, mix that in, and let it sit for 5 minutes. It should have the same consistency as buttermilk (I promise you.) Also, my tip for those who want a very moist cake, add some instant pudding when you sift your flour (I used CAKE FLOUR for this recipe). Or for a moist cake, to your batter, add sour cream.
I hope this helps for those who are having trouble! Have fun baking!
