    Expert Tips

    Cake mix makes this favorite very easy, but everyone knows it's the frosting that makes this cake fabulous--and that's still made from scratch. Enjoy the cake with flavored coffees like amaretto or hazelnut.
    SuperMoist® devil's food cake mix can also be used for a dark red velvet cake; omit cocoa.
