I was a bit disappointed with this cake. I think it most definitely needs to be tweaked. I think it called for way too much food coloring, and too little cocoa. And making a paste out of the two I felt was an unneeded step. As it turned out, my box of food coloring came with two blue dyes, no red, so I used both blues trying to get close to 4 tbls, not even close. So, it turned into a Black Velvet Cake haha.
It was also on the dry side. Not a terrible cake, but I won't be making it again.
And I used my own cream cheese frosting instead of what the recipe called for, and it's the best part of the cake.
