ok so I forgot to add the baking soda and vinegar to my red velvet cake icon_cry.gif it looks fine except of course it didn't rise. This only happened for 2 of the layers. Happen to anyone before? Can I still use these layers or do I have to re-bake? If they taste fine I'd rather just use them. Please let me know what to do.....Thanks!

I have no idea... can you level the cakes and taste the scraps?

They should taste fine. The only problem is the density. You will get a very dense cake. Baking soda and vinegar do nothing for the taste (they neutralize itself in this cake) but work as leavening agent. Can you live with such cake?

thanks guys...ok so I went ahead and baked another cake. turns out the cake did taste just fine but it was very dense like you said and it didn't match the other it was a lot flatter like not even one inch tall. it's a weddding cake so I have to make it perfect even if it kills me!

Thanks again

You can always make cake balls or cake pops with the scraps!

Bummer, SpoonfulofSugar....but you probably won't forget an ingredient for a long time to come! Just trying to look on the up side.....!
Hope things are already going much better for you.
