Hello all!! I'm brand new here (and with cake-making in general). First of all, this is such a great site....what a great group of people and good info/help at the tip of my fingers 24/7!!!
I used the Red Velvet Cake III recipe this weekend for an event I was helping with....it was a hit! That recipe is wonderful. I doctored it just a bit; I actually added just a tad more vanilla pudding mix than the recipe calls for. It was soooo moist. I also didn't use the icing from the III recipe - had one of my own I wanted to try.
I can't advertise as of yet, so I was really excited when someone asked me for contact information in case they wanted to call on me for future events.

Do you think that I could use red paste coloring? I can't seem to find red liquid around here anymore. Would I use a whole jar of it? Wouldn't that taste icky? The only way I can find the liquid is if I buy all four colors - then I'm stuck with them! I need a red velvet cake for June.
I don't see why that would not work, make sure you get a no-taste red so that it does not taste as icky. Then add a portion at a time until you get the desired color.
