I'm looking for the frosting from one of those little recipe books, betty crocker and it was for a red velvet cake made with marshmallow cream. Do you have the recipe for this frosing?
I make mine with a Marble Cake mix also, but at the request of a co-worker I use frosting made from instant vanilla pudding. It's what her Mom used to make her for her Birthday. I owed her a favor one day and asked what I could do for her, and not being a shy person,,, she ordered a Red Velvet Cake with "THIS frosting" and she handed me the recipe. lol. It's the frosting I always use now. I do add powdered sugar and a little extra milk just to stretch it out some & make it more stable for a layer cake. Just made it a few days ago as a matter of fact because my DH reuested it for his BDay also.

This ruby-red cake with it's lovely cream cheese frosting has become my "signature dessert." I can't go to any family function without it. The cake is very moist with a buttery chocolate taste.

I have made 3 red velvet cakes in the past year with 3 different recipes ( from scratch ) and I just can't see what all the hype is about this cake ( My opinion only) I only made these cakes because everyone talks about how good they are. After making the cake 3 times, I would far rather have a good old fashioned chocolate cake. As I stated " My opinion only"
I haven't ever used a cake mix - other than the red velvet cake mix and I don't particularly like it. I will try the marble one next time. I generally use that cake mix to make a really neat cake with 4 different "colors" and it is spectacular when you slice it.
My "scratch" red velvet cake mix is very good but I also like the cream cheese icing better than the one that "comes" with my recipe. However, there is one thing about the "included frosting recipe" - not as sweet as other frostings.
