    Red Velvet Cake

    1 (18.25 ounces) box yellow cake mix
    5 eggs
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1 cup low-fat or regular buttermilk
    2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    2 ounces red food coloring

    1. In a large bowl, combine the dry cake mix and only the ingredients listed above (do not add the ingredients listed on the cake box). Check the box directions to see how long you need to mix the batter and then bake according to the directions on the box for the size pans you are using.
    2. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes, run a dull knife around the edges, then carefully turn out onto a cake rack or plate to finish cooling.

    Cream Cheese Icing
    1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
    1/2 stick butter, softened
    1/2 box plus 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Using a mixer, blend all of the ingredients together until smooth and creamy. You can add one or two drops of red food coloring for a pink icing, or leave it white for the traditional one.
    The average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think.
