  • 3 Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, cook flour and milk over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is very thick. Cover surface with plastic wrap; cool to room temperature.
  • 4 In large bowl, beat sugar and butter with electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture by tablespoonfuls, beating until smooth. Beat in vanilla.
  • 5 Place 1 cake layer, top side down, on serving plate; spread with 1 cup frosting. Top with second layer, top side up. Frost side and top of cake with frosting. Store in refrigerator.

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.
