I have never made a red velvet cake before, so was a bit nervous about making this one. I've had a few disasters relating to cupcakes, but this recipe was a piece of cake (literally!). Lovely texture, and the richness of colour was beautiful. The icing, though - not so sure about. It was pretty and soft, but I prefer a cream cheese icing that has less icing sugar in it, purely because of that chalky grainy feel you can get with it. I added some lemon juice to cut through that - it just gives the flavour more fullness. Other than that, I would make this again in a heartbeat! Very impressed!
