Hi, i'll be making a baby shower cake next week and i need a recipe for red velvet cake, idealy I would like to make it from scratch, but I don't have a lot of free time and I would like to know how I can doctor up a red velvet cake mix, it will be a carved cake and about 3 tiers.

I appreciate any ideas!!

TIA.

Shabbychic - I was just curious to know if you tried the doctored red velvet recipe and if so, how did it turn out. I have to make one and don't even know what a good red velvet is supposed to taste like so I need a recipe (scratch OR doctored) that is a winner.

I just recently found this web site of a gent in Brooklyn NY who does the most amazing red velvet cake and he has his recipe posted online.

I gave it a try and it is amazing and I think that this will be my only red velvet cake recipe from here on out.

His bio is inspirational and a must read but here is the link to the recipe icon_smile.gif

cakeman Raven is world famous for that cake. I also use that as my red velvet, with a few changes.
