This cake was really outstanding. I was nervous, because I had never done a red velvet cake before. I baked it in a heart shaped pan for valentines day- it turned out beautifully. I would definately say that 1 oz of red color is plenty! It is an entire bottle- the color was perfect. I used cake flour- which make the texture almost like angel food cake. Wow. I was, however, a tad disappointed by the frosting though- perhaps I did something wrong. When I added the melted white chocolate to the cream cheese and butter, the chocolate started to "clump up", so I had to push the frosting through a fine sieve before I could frost the cake, otherwise, it was chunky. Not quite the texture I was looking for. I think I will use a standard cream cheese frosting next time. The cake though, amazing.
