    Finally, a real recipe for Red Velvet Cake with REAL Red Velvet Icing. Why do so many people think "Velvet" cake takes Cream Cheese Frosting. Real is time consuming, but worth the effort. I add coconut and chopped pecans to frosting. A family favorite for 45 years....try it.

    red cake is no good with cream cheese frosting, that stuff belongs with carrot cake. This is the type of frosting that red cake needs. :)
