Semi-homemade Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting

This recipe is brought to you in part by the Red Velvet Cake Craving. To find out about the time I was craving red velvet cake check out the link that resulted in the creation of this recipe.

Cake Ingredients:
  • 1 box Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 package chocolate fudge pudding (3.9oz)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 eggs
Combine all the ingredients and bake at 350 degree oven. For cupcakes 20 minutes. For two round cake pans bake for 30 minutes. Be sure to let the cake completely cool before frosting. This cake is super moist, I love to refrigerate it for a little while before eating it and to let everything set.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 1 8oz. package cream cheese
  • 3 sticks of butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 8oz. tub of cool whip
Cream everything together for a nice and creamy cream cheese frosting. When making a cake I like to half the frosting before adding the cool whip and add 3/4 of the container to the filling and the last 1/4 of the cool whip to the frosting to be used to cover the rest of the cake.


**Update: This Red Velvet recipe tastes even BETTER (can't believe it's even possible) with Flour Frosting**
