I don't believe the overall rating for this cake is very accurate. Before making the cake, I only read the front page reviews, but if you continue to read others, a great deal of people rated it at 5 stars for the icing alone. The flavor was good; however, I didn't care for the texture at all. It came out DENSE and DRY. I followed the directions, and by the suggestion of other reviewers, used 4 1/2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. I bake quite often and instinctly wanted to make my own adjustments but didn't because this was my first red velvet cake. I made it TWICE thinking I had made a mistake, but the flavor and texture were consistent in both. Very disappointing. My rating is still 3 stars because the flavor was good, it rose nicely, and was fairly easy to frost.
