My sister just requested a Red Velvet Cake for her birthday this weekend. Yes, this weekend, Christmas weekend!!! UUGGG!!!! I guess it isn't her fault she was born 2 days after Christmas, so she should still get her cake. icon_biggrin.gif

But since it is Christmas, and I am hosting our huge family for 5 days, I will not have time to "try" several different recipes. icon_lol.gif

What is your favorite Red Velvet Recipe? If you don't mind sharing that is. icon_redface.gif

Mine would be Cakeman Raven's. You can google, it's everywhere on the web. icon_wink.gif

I've tried both Cakeman Raven's and Sarah's Red Velvet (as well as a couple of other forgettable ones). I personally liked Sarah's better, but you can't go wrong with either one.

Here's the link to Sarah's: http://cakecentral.com/recipes/7377/sarahs-red-velvet-cake-tweaked

I second the Sarah's Red Velvet. I have tried a lot of different recipes, and this is by far my, and everyone else's, favorite.

Sarah's all the way.

OK. Those are the two I was considering. I was hoping there would be a clear winner, but I guess not.

Has anyone tried both? If so, could you tell me the differnce between them?

Does anyone know if I can make my own buttermilk for those recipes with milk and vinager? They didn't have any at the store I went to, and would hate to pack the girls up again to go to another one.

Thanks again!!!

I always use milk and vinegar instead of buttermilk.
