I think I accidentally posted my topic in the wrong section. So I am posting it here to. Sorry, I am a newbie to CC.

Hello Bakers! icon_biggrin.gif

I am baking my first topsy turvy cake for my mom's birthday, and it is going to be 3 tiers.

I DO NOT want to use pound cake, as it is really boring, and I know she wouldn't like it. I want to use the WASC recipe for one tier, and then for the other tiers, I wanted red velvet.

Can someone please tell me a great recipe for a red velvet cake that is great with carving and stacking?

Normally, I wouldn't use red velvet. But, this is her favorite type of cake. icon_cry.gif

Isn't there a boxed Red Velvet cake mix? I'm wondering if you could do a WASC version of it?
I'm not too experienced with anything beyond WASC for topsy turvy.
I tried to do a chocolate one using a triple fudge mix and it completely crumbled apart on me. I'm in the process of trying again, using half the liquid called for in the original recipe.
topsy turvy cakes don't need to be pound cake, but they do need to be firm because of the tapering. Good luck to you.

Macsmom's Red Velvet cake is delicious, and dense. Maybe you could try it?

1 box dark chocolate cake mix
2 pkg chocolate pudding
2 teaspoons salt
3 c flour

3 c sour cream
3 cups vanilla coffee creamer
