I am looking for some good scratch cake recipes. I found the red velvet one on here (Sarah's) that I love. I am looking for some good vanilla and chocolate ones that will hold up when being stacked or trimmed. My chocolate cakes are usually crumbly from a mix - even the durable 3d recipe gave me trouble this weekend. I lost part of my 12" round, but was able to salvage it into an oval. It was fudgey and yummy but still crumbled.

Moist, & spongey is my goal! Thanks.

Cuteums or fluttercakes can you tell me which Sarah (or her username so I can search) posted the red velvet cake recipe. I would like to try it. Thanks!

Thanks for all the links. It really is helpful.

Here is the link to the Sarah's Red Velvet recipe

I like the tweaked version because I made the original and there really was too much food coloring in it. (it called for 2 bottles/ounces of coloring instead of 1)

I made my own cream cheese frosting for the top.
