I love Red Velvet Cake - had it for my wedding :) I'm trying another RV recipe from this site, but if it doesn't work, I'll definitely give this one a try! Not too sure about flour in my frosting, so I'll just play it safe and use my usual Cream Cheese Frosting.

I love this video, perfect timing for Valentines Day, and I always thought red velvet cake would be so hard to make. I am making this for my husband tomorrow for Valentines Day!
