    DH's favorite! I use the store bought whipped cream cheese icing.

    Red Velvet Cake:

    Beat together:

    1/2 c. Crisco
    1 1/2 c. sugar
    2 eggs
    1 t. vanilla

    Mix in cup and set aside:

    2 oz. red food coloring
    2 1/2T. baking cocoa

    Add to first mixture while alternating with the food coloring mixture:

    2 1/2 c. flour
    1 c. buttermilk

    Mix together and FOLD into batter while foaming:

    1 T. vinegar
    1 t. baking soda

    Bake in 3 greased and floured 8" round pans @ 300 for about 30 to 35 minutes (sometimes longer) until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes & turn onto wire racks to cool completely.
