    I would love to make this red velvet cream cheese cake however, I read over the recipe and, I'm trying to figure out when to add the red food coloring and the vinegar. From the picture the bottom looks like an actual red velvet cake on top of a graham cracker crust with a cream cheese topping. It seems to me several steps were left out. Please explain.... :)

    I made this for someones birthday, and the cake is very good. what I do not like is the topping for the cake they recommend-it just taste too sweet, so what I did is made the regular icing I put on my red velvet cakes, and tweek it with some pecans and coconut, and ice all over. That's our taste, but I know everyone is different. I do not like to taste more sugar than I do cream cheese so that was my solution. Happy and tasty baking whichever way you go.....If it were not for the recommended icing topping I would give it a five, but because of that I gotta back it down a notch.....
