Has anyone made this cake? Many years ago, someone gave me the recipe. I noticed that every time I made it, it was very heavy as if it had dropped (it hadn't). Did anyone notice or was it the recipe I was given?

Thanks
Rosie

It may have been the recipe. I find Red Velvet to be a nice light cake. Although, I have to say I prefer a dark chocolate cake.

the recipe in Confetti Cakes, Elisa Strauss, is very nice. there are some in the recipe section that people like.

Overmixing can result in a dense heavy cake.....
