Easy Red Velvet Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

Our easy version of Red Velvet Cake starts with a cake mix and uses the "one bowl" method of combining all the ingredients at once to make the batter. Make it even easier by purchasing a container of cream cheese frosting instead of preparing the frosting from scratch.
