Red Velvet Cake

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I received an order for RD cake. And I've never made one before. The client wants a shoe box and a shoe. So it needs to be durable and moist. I'm a bit confused on which one tastes the best. Can anyone let me know which recipe is best for this design? thank-you gracie

I like Cake Man Ravens recipe. It tastes really good and its durable but still moist.

Thank-you, I just found it. I hear a lot about not using the boxed version because it tastes nothing like the real thing. And that's what I need. The real thing. thank-you again

I give a hearty "second that!" to wierkd's suggestion!
Cake Man Raven's recipe is the best I've tried for a traditional RV.
It's not chocolate cake (with only a couple Tbsp worth in the recipe, and includes vinegar and buttermilk. IMHO, it's PERFECT. icon_smile.gif

HTH, and good luck,

Love Cakeman, my favorite... but there are two changes to his recipe floating all around the internet and in my opinion, it does make the cake better.

1) Reduce the oil by 1/4 c
2) Increase the cocoa powder by 1 to 2 tbsp

If you choose to used his icing, he several versions. Use 3 sticks of butter instead of 2. One version has it up to 4 sticks, but I haven't tried it yet.

OK, maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see a recipe for it. Just a few others, like the Apple Slab, or Doughnut Muffins (which I can't wait to make).
