For those of you confused about the "traditional" icing on a red velvet cake, the fact is that there just isn't one. Nobody is sure where the recipe originated, other than 'the south', and the most popular topping is a cream cheese frosting. Professional shops that serve red velvet cake use either butter cream, cream cheese, or butter roux. As a matter of fact, the I have been able to find out about the original (or closest to it) recipes is that the red color is supposed to come from beets, rather than food coloring. This cake, however, is delicious with the coloring it uses. I would suggest following the recipe exactly.
