What is red velvet?

Red Velvet has a wonderful subtle chocolate flavor and vivid red color. I think that the taste is somewhere between a chocolate and vanilla cake.

In some recipes, the ingredient that really sets it a part is the addition of buttermilk. Adding buttermilk amps up the flavor and helps to give a light texture.

Cream cheese frosting or glaze is a classic addition to red velvet desserts. The tangy cream cheese flavor pairs perfectly with the sweet red velvet flavor. Although whipped cream is also a nice way to finish a red velvet cake mix dessert.
