i'm one that doesn't mind mixes, but RV is one mix that i will not use. That is one that i always make from scratch b/c the box doesn't come close imo

I'm Southern and we can tell the difference. That being said, most people don't have RV enough to know if its a mix Sino say go for it!! Try cake doctors RV, she has one that I've used for my husbands police squad Christmasbparty every year....its requested every year! I make it with white chocolate peppermint bc and Ohhh myyy yummy!!

I use DH red velvet mix with chocolate pudding in it....I don't like red velvet but it tastes fine to me and so far everyone who has ordered it really likes it. Homemade cream cheese filling of course.

RV and the butter pecan flavor mix are the only two box mixes I refuse to use, I think they taste funky, even after expanding with pudding and/or sour cream etc...wish I could find a good one.
