I used the following subs; oil instead of shortening, 1 oz red food coloring and 4 tbsp of cocoa powder. After cooking the cake for 30 minutes, the middle was still liquid. I cooked it for another 10 minutes and the toothpick still came out wet. Another five minutes and the cake was done. I use the cream cheese frosting II after the cake cooled. I've never had red velvet cake before but am experienced at making cakes. The frosting was delicious buy practically over-whelmed the cake flavor. I tried the cake later, without the frosting and it didn't taste like anything special. It wasn't dry but it wasn't moist as others claim. I just don't see what all the fuss is about.
