Great cake after the recommended changes, FABULOUS icing. For those who didn't like the icing my guess is they were looking for the traditional cream cheese frosting. I don't care for traditional cream cheese frosting and I LOVED this. It was lighter and fluffier & had a taste somewhere b/twn the cream cheese and the pudding. I usually scrape any icing off my cake and just eat the cake. This was one where I could have eaten just the frosting. I will use this frosting recipe over and over! I took the advice of others and doubled the red food coloring, used chocolate pudding for the vanilla in the cake, used 4 Tbsp cocoa powder and used melted butter instead of veggie oil. It tasted great - equivalent to a 4 star in my book, but since there were so many changes made I took a star off. I wish I could have given it a 3.5 though because I was wild for the frosting.
