My First Post, Red Velvet Cake!

Red Velvet Cake: My First Post!!!!

Red Velvet Cake

Hi everyone :)

First, I like to thanks for being patient with me. I still trying to get the hang of how to blog....

For my first post, I would like to share my husband's favorite cake, Red Velvet.  I made it on our anniversary (also his birthday), April 11th.  I think he arranged it like that so he won't forget. Ha ha.  ;)

The cake layers come from Better Homes and Gardens. I wanted to make a bigger and taller cake, so  I doubled the cake layers and baked it in 4 round 10" cake pans for about 30 minutes. I used this cream cheese frosting recipe from Allrecipes.com. I prepared the layers about 2 weeks ahead and froze them.

I was very please with the result; so was hubby. He's still waiting on a repeat performance.  :)  I love nuts on red velvet cake, but left them off because he doesn't. Do any of you all love nuts on your cakes, or what is your favorite cake? I would love to hear from you. I'm a Carrot Cake nut!

ENJOY!
