I thought this was an okay version of what I look for in a red velvet cake, but I definitely wouldn't call it great. I didn't alter the recipe too much, except I added more cocoa and used less food coloring and the cake still came out bright red. I found the end product a bit too dry and it had too much of a floury taste. I used exactly as the recipe called for, no more. I know these cakes usually have this kind of taste, but this was way too overpowering. I had to overcompensate on the frosting to not notice the flour. I also didn't use the frosting because I prefer a cream cheese frosting. Overall, I say it's average, but I will definitely try it again with the suggestions from other reviewers.
