Moist and delicious, this layer cake tastes like scratch but uses a cake mix! Best red velvet we've tried. This is the new requested birthday cake! Good one, mom!
1 Betty Crocker red velvet cake mix
1 box chocolate instant pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp red food color
Judi's Cream Cheese Frosting recipe (see below)
Mix all cake ingredients and beat 2 minutes. Pour into 3 9"greased and floured (or use flour spray) cake pans. Bake at 350 for about 22 minutes. Cool completely and layer with cream cheese frosting, then cover entire cake in a layer of frosting. Refrigerate.
