i've never tried red velvet cake so i decide to make this one for my family. i followed this recipe to the T, but it turned out being crumbly. even so...we all agreed it tastes great. i will definately try again but tweak it a bit so it's not as crumbly.
I haven't made this cake yet, but a few cakes that I've made crumbled a bit. I found that putting a pot of water in the over with the cake helps it retain water. If that doesn't work, you might need an extra egg to help hold it together. The water usually works, especially in more humid areas. Make sure the pot either doesn't have handles or it has metal ones so they don't melt. Just don't expect it to boil.
