Devil's Food Cake recipe

 "Devil's food cake" is known as "Red velvet cake". This cake is very famous for red color sponge and velvet texture, vary in the amounts of shortening, butter and vegetable oil.
In recent years, red velvet cake and  red velvet cupcakes have become popular in US and many other european countries too.
