Red Velvet Results
I had seen many recipes on line and blogged recently about which recipe I would use (the recipe from Baking Is My Zen), however, that WAS NOT the recipe I used though the photos on that blog look amazing and I added it to my favorites for future reference to other recipes and suggest you do the same, maybe next time I'll give it a whirl to taste the difference if any. The actual recipe I used came from Food.com for the Waldorf Astoria Cake using shortening instead of butter among other changes. I won't re post either of the recipes (lets give credit where credit is due) so just follow the links if you want them, I know it depends on a persons preference to bake with shortening or butter so take your pick.
Now for anyone who really REALLY likes baking and would like to see a comparison of Red Velvet Cakes.... I stumbled on a site that really goes into detail and also, if I'm not mistaken, posts links to all the recipes used (or at least it names them so a google search is made easy). The Bake More blog displays photos and details of the cakes and also offers spreadsheet results! I added her blog to my favorites for future viewing!!
I've got three small pieces of a single layer cake left because the taste-testers had to give me their opinion... kids love cake so chances of them saying anything negative is slim to none (at least, not if they want more cake!).
