I just mixed up a red velvet cake from a recipe I found on here. The recipe is as follows:

Doctored Red Velvet Cake Mix Cake

1 box DH red velvet cake mix
1 box of white chocolate or chocolate pudding
1/3 cup oil
4 eggs
1/2 c sour cream
1/2 c lowfat buttermilk

Bake at 325 until a tootpick comes out clean

Here's my question:
Is is supposed to be thick? Really thick? I'm use to following cake mix recipies exactly as they say on the back of the box (oil and water and sometimes eggs) and this recipe said nothing about water.
Was I supposed to follow the back of the box directions and then add this stuff in on top of that?
The cakes are in the oven right now and I'm going crazy thinking they are going to be a horrible disaster

No, you don't have water, but you have sour cream and buttermilk. I only used milk in mine, never water. The batter is thicker and it works out fine for me so far.
