Ok, I had MOB call me and tell me she was going to try to do the wedding cake herself but bride wanted back up plan. A month later she calls back, needs me to do! She say she has already bought boxes upon boxes of red velvet cake mix...and if I can use this. I have never made, eaten, or seen in person- red velvet cake. So I am clueless. My question is, I always use the "durable" cake recipes for weddings that have a box mix of whatever flavor, plus a box of instant pudding in same flavor; so, do you experts out there think I can I use her Red Velvet cake mixes with my durable recipe and use vanilla pudding mix and still have it taste like red velvet cake?
Thanks for helping me!

Sure, I do it all the time:

1 box DH Red Velvet mix
1 box white chocolate or milk chocolate instant pudding mix
4 eggs
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. lowfat buttermilk

Bake at 325 degrees until toothpick comes out clean.

Great cake!

When I make a Red Velvet I use the DH cake mix. I add to it a chocolate or pudding cake mix, add the extra egg, use what ever oil is called for on the box, then will subsitute the water for buttermilk if I have it on hand. icon_smile.gif Comes out yummy every time.
