I should have left a review for this awhile ago ... I make it every year for the 4th of July, and friends/family now request it at almost BBQ get together we have. It's really light and delicious! I use a .3 oz bottle of food coloring (don't want to get too crazy with that stuff), and a little more cocoa, maybe 2-3 tbsp. It comes out fantastic EVERY time!
I followed this recipe although I have a red velvet cake recipe I use regularly. While this looks nice and is fine, I found the cake to be a bit dry and overall the whole thing was a bit fussy. I generally want a more yummy taste for a special occasion dessert. Probably wouldn't make again. Or would use my moister RVC recipe and finish with this whipped cream and berry combo.
