I was wondering the same thing? I know that you could possible use the chocolate version of WASC, but would you have to add more red food coloring?

This is what I did and it turned out great.

I used DH Red Velvet cake mix and added 1 Tble of light cocoa and it turned out wonderful.

You could also doctor a German chocolate cakemix. That's my favorite.

CherryLane:

When you use the cocoa, do you add anything else?

Michelle:

How do you doctor your German Chocolate cake? What do you add to it?

Thanks!

I made the basic WASC receipe using Red Velvet cake mix and added 1 Tbls of light cocoa per box of cake mix. That's it. I did not add any extra red food coloring.

You can use the enhanced recipe and use chocolate pudding and full buttermilk instead of the water and it makes a great Red Velvet. Don't forget to add some red food coloring!

I have rvc this weekend to. I usually give the customer the option of regular BC, white chocolate BC, or cream cheese BC. This weekend the customer is getting white chocolate, but they all taste good. I like cream cheese the best personally. =]

I made my RVC today, and here is what I did:

Use whole eggs instead of just whites
Sub 1/2 C. of cocoa for 1/2 flour (3/4 ratio of flour to cocoa)

and it turn out FABULOUS!!!
It was so moist, I have never had RVC that was so moist! mmm! icon_biggrin.gif

and the cake was still very red, no need to add more red coloring.

Okie dokie! That's what I'll do! Then just frost it and cover with fondant like normal? Is it strong enough to withstand the weight of the fondant? I'm a little nervous b/c I've only done 1 rvc and it was just the old fashioned torted way..... icon_confused.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif

Oh yea, it will be strong enough to cover with fondant. Mine will be covered in fondant also. This recipe is firmer than most others (but still moist) and it will be just fine! Good luck with your cakes! icon_cool.gif
