Is white or german chocolate cake mix better to use when making a red velvet cake?? I have been asked to make a red velvet cake. I not sure what it is suppose to taste like. I have only tasted red velvet one time. It was when I made it with german chocolate cake mix. It was good, but nothing I would rave about, but then I don't have anything to compare it to. Or would it be better to make one from scratch? I have found several scratch recipes that sound good, but a mix usually is lighter and more moist. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
If you are going to make it from a mix, then the Duncan Hines Red Velvet mix is fine. There are many scratch recipes out there but actually my family preferred Duncan Hines even over the great Martha Stewart's recipe, though her cream cheese icing is VERY good!
I have used marble cake mix for a recipe I use for Red Velvet cake.
