CakeMan Raven Cake....I did the recipe! - Page 3

post #31 of 46
I love RV cake. I have done the Sarah's RV cake here on CC and I really love it. But I will definitely give this one a try. Probably for this weekend for Valentine's. Thanks, I just printed the recipe!

I use to use his recipe but I thought it was me and I did not like red velvet cake but I tried one from cc and it was great I got great reviews and I'm sticking with it. But you can use fondant with cakeman raven red velvet cake.

I tried this cake and was good. The only problem I had was with the food colouring. For some reason the colour seperated during baking so I ended up with a two toned cake, brown at the bottom and red on the top half. I'm really confused about this one cause I had combined the ingredients well.

Hi to all...I'd like to know if you can use the Wilton's red dye for this cake.
Chocolatestone, sorry I can't help you since I've never done this cake...
Good luck!

Just looking at the recipe, I'm sure the "greasy" feel some are getting is due to the amount of oil in the recipe. I checked the reviews on Foodnetwork for the recipe, a few decreased the amount of oil. I may give this a try this weekend but I'm definitely cutting down a bit on the oil.

And as far as coloring, you can find red food dye at any grocery store in the seasonings aisle. What you'd use to dye easter eggs.

Thank you very much for your response Ironbaker...I've never used red food dye before so I didn't even know they sell it at grocery stores icon_smile.gif
I'm also tempted on trying this recipe over the weekend.
Good luck!

I tried this recipe on Sunday night and there is hardly any cake left... I keep eating it all! My hubby and kids have had a few pieces, but not nearly as much as me. I think I've found my new favorite cake icon_biggrin.gif

It's on the Food Network site. It is also all over the web. Also, and this really irks me, Chef Steph put Cakeman's recipe on CC and called it hers, but it is his recipe, just credit wasn't given.

Has anyone tried the cake flour version and the All-purpose flour version? Which is better?
post #42 of 46
I haven't tried it with straight up all-purpose flour, but I make my own cake flour fpr this cake using AP flour and cornstarch. Just replace 2 tbsp of the flour with 2 tbsp of cornstarch for every cup of flour, and sift like crazy...4-5 times. Sooo much cheaper than buying cake flour, and works the same!

This is the only RV recipe I've ever made, and everyone I know has absolutely raved about it. I do omit a bunch of the oil (it's still plenty moist), and add a little more cocoa powder (but not enough to turn it into a "chocolate" cake). I have made his CC frosting, but I found too heavy - now I use a crusting CC frosting OR most of the time, I use the "extra special buttercream" with CC added. I got the recipe from this site and I really like that particular frosting.

I just made the Cake Man Raven RV. It was the best tasting of the ones I have made (Crumb Boss's tasted good right after baking, but was dry and bland the next day despite being filled, frosted, and fondant covered). The only problem I had was the oil! It didn't seem too oily when I made it, but I crumbled the cake and used it for cake pops. While the candy coating was drying on them, they started falling off the pop sticks and I noticed that they were literally dripping oil! I need to make RV again this week and I'm curious for those of you that decreased the oil, how much did you cut out? I was thinking I would use 1-1 1/4 c. instead of the 1 1/2 cups called for (so cut by 1/4-1/2 c.).
