Red Velvet is my husbands favorite cake so I went on the search for a homemade red velvet cake for his birthday. I found numerous recipes that all sounded great so I took bits and pieces from each recipe and came up with this poke cake. Don't let the ingredients and multiple steps keep you from making this cake. Trust me, it is to die for.

** If you don't have a cream cheese frosting you use please take a look at mine and consider it.. Tastes A-M-A-Z-I-N-G**
