Thank you..made this cake for my husband's birthday...took it to his work. I've never had so many raves over one of my cakes! My husband said they've never eaten the 'whole' cake when anyone's brought them before. Adjustments: So, I didn't have any sour cream so I used cream cheese instead (trying it with sour cream and cream cheese this next time, also skipped the cocoa since my cake mix was a dark chocolate), I also added about 4 Tbsp cream cheese, in place of some of the butter, to the icing. Icing is a perfect amount if you are making it a layer cake...it's not sickly sweet like normal

Because of the huge amount of frosting--check out the picture--put lots of frosing between the layers...and be sure to beat the frosting a lot--the sugar granules should disapper and it shouldn't be granular.

I made this for my Bunco ladies and they loved it--this tasted the same as the made from scratch version--and the frosting is what should be on Red Velvet Cake--not cream cheese or buttercream. The frosting does make more than needed, but the layers were very high and it was such a moist cake! I will definitely never make it from scratch again. YUMMY!!! 5 ***** star

Receipe for cake came out great. The frosting was a little sweet for me..maybe next time I would try less sugar. Does anyone have any other suggestions??? Otherwise the consistency and everything worked out great!

This cake was really a quick and easy cake to bake. It wasn't as red as I had hoped for, but that can be fixed with more food coloring next time! I also had too much icing left over. I ended up throwing away about 2 cups. Next time, I'll just use a cream cheese icing or a traditional glaze.

Made this cake for my family and we all loved it! The frosting was great, but this recipe yielded too much - I ended up throwing about 2 cups of frosting. The sour cream really makes this a moist and yummy cake!

The yummiest cake I've ever made! Everybody in my family loved it. Thanks Pilsbury. (And the icing was much better with the butter than the old way of using shortening. =)
