“This may sound cocky, but seriously, stop looking for an amazing, homemade red velvet cake recipe because here she is!!! I've had three professional wedding cake bakers ask me for this ridiculously moist recipe. Not only is this red velvet cake "stick to the back of the fork" moist, but it's so soft with that perfect red velvety chocolate taste. Frost with whipped cream cheese icing and perfecto!!”
