red velvety goodness

so, i always just use good 'ole
for the cake part.
{why reinvent the wheel, right}
when i try to make this cake from scratch it always tastes bitter
b/c of all the red coloring you have to put in it.

just follow directions on the box and let cool before frosting

then i add this frosting:
{my grandma salmon makes it every valentine's day}

over med. heat, mix together
1 Cup milk
1/2 Cup flour
stir constantly until it forms a pudding-like texture
let cool to room temp

beat in separate bowl cream together:
1/2 C up softened butter
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

slowly add pudding mixture
and whip until all combined
{i sometimes add more powdered sugar to thicken it up}

{the frosting isn't my fav by itself...but oh so yummy on this cake!}
