I use it - I also add a box of chocolate pudding and instead of water I used half & half. Comes out great - never dry.

Wow that is just what I was thinking of doing! I was thinking about using a rv WASC with the refrigerated philadelphia cheesecake filling instead of the sour cream and then try to fill it with the cheesecake filling...I just need to figure out what I want to do for a frosting? I had read here on CC where someone just used Lorann's cheesecake flavoring in a buttercream. I wonder what that would taste like? I also wondered if I added the cheesecake filling to a crusting buttercream if it would still crust?

Wondering which has more chocolate flavor of all the Red Velvet posted.

I do this only with chocolate pudding instead of white, and its really good, and I don't like red velvet.

RVC is really popular in the South. I really think is has to do with the color of the cake and the cream cheese frosting. People think they're having something really special.
I've tried a lot of RVC recipes & haven't really been totally satisfied with any of them.
Sarah's-I didn't care for @ all. It turned out dry & not sweet enough.
Paula Deen's-horrible IMO
Cake Mix Doctor-uses choc. cake mix as the base. It was really moist with a lot of choc flavor, but I think RVC needs buttermilk. The color of the cake was a little muddy.

Macsmom's-this is the one I currently use. It gets great reviews. It uses 1 white mix, one dk choc mix, choc pudding, sour cream, etc. It's really moist, but I still miss the buttermilk. Next time I make it, I'll probably add a little in place of the vanilla coffee creamer to try it out.

Do you guys just add those ingredients and don't Wasc it ( extra flour, sugar, sour cream)? And do you add any water or buttermilk to it?

I use the DH RV cake mix all the time with rave reviews, all I do is sub the water for whole milk and add 2 tsp of vanilla. I also use homemade CC icing which is just 8oz cream cheese, 1 stick of butter, 1 lb of powdered sugar and 2 tsp of vanilla. The key to RV is not to overbake it, once it's dry its ruined.

Personally, RV is not my favorite but people love it.

I use the WASC recipe minus the "A".

Ducin Hines Red Velvet Mix
White Chocolate Pudding
4 eggs
Sour cream, flour, sugar, oil (as called for in WASC recipe)

I love red velvet cake, especially with cream cheese frosting.

2 weeks ago I had a consultation with a bride and one of the flavors I put out was red velvet. She had never had red velvet cake before. After tasting it she said "I always wondered why people loved red velvet cake and now I know. The is amazing".
She booked with me and one of the tiers is red velvet.

Since DH changed and went to cheap ingredients and/or changed the recipe I cannot stand the taste of their mixes. They would have to be seriously doctored. They're tasteless and dry.

Duncan hines Red Velvet cake mix is delicious!! I prefer it over Sprinkles cupcakes recipe!!..Duncan hines Red velvet never comes out dry or hard, if it does that has to do with the baker((not the cake mix)). ...Now whats this about adding Dr. Pepper to the mix??
