Nana's Red Velvet Cake

My mother in law passed this recipe down to me when her son requested that I make this cake. It's a beautiful cake with the deep red color and the bright white frosting. It's great for a holiday party (or anytime really). This red velvet cake gets regular compliments when I bake it for my friends and family. My brother in law recently asked me to make it as his groom's cake for his wedding and all of the guests raved about it. It's a simple recipe that you really can't go wrong with!
