This recipe's creator, Martie Leming of Raleigh, N.C., says: "I researched lots of old from-scratch recipes, identified the common attributes, merged the differences and recognized that I could alter a cake mix and get the same results.

"When I went looking, there weren't any current recipes in the easy places. I had to turn to the older cookbooks. Now you see Red Velvet Cakes everywhere."
