I'm making a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting...what flavoring simple syrup would you recommend. I've never made or tasted red velvet, so I have no idea what would be best!! icon_smile.gif

Also, I've seen a few recipes on here (including mascmom) and was wondering which is best for using under fondant!?

A lot of times I don't flavor my simple syrup. That's what I would do for this cake. It will still be moist and delicious. But that way the flavors won't counteract with the red velvet.

That's what I was thinking too! - thanks!

Has anyone tried the Confetti Cakes Red Velvet Recipe? I'm assuming it would be dense enough to hold fondant since that's what she does...but how about the flavor and texture?

No prob!

I haven't tried her recipe, but I would say that all of her recipes are going to hold up really well under fondant. Hopefully, someone else has the answer.
