I used Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake mix.
Do NOT make the pudding. You are only using the mix.
You can use any flavor of pudding that you prefer. Chocolate, vanilla, white chocolate would all be good.
You can use low-fat or non-fat Cool Whip.
Can Red Velvet Love Cake Be Made in Advance? Yes. The cake can be made a day in advance and refrigerated overnight. This cake actually tastes better after being refrigerated. I love make-ahead desserts, especially during the hectic holiday season.
