Red Velvet is quite a unique flavor. Red Velvet can not be described as one specific flavor. This flavor is a blend of chocolate and vanilla flavor.

In this Red Velvet Cake recipe, you will be using the cool whip as one of the main ingredients. This will be the reason it needs to be placed in the fridge. You can keep the cake out for a bit, but when your done enjoying it, it is recommended that you put it in a sealed container.
