Where did you learn to write? And spell? Please reword this in a coherent manner with complete sentences and some punctuation. For crying out loud could we please not butcher the written word this way.

Where text speak and lack of proper English bugs me to death....that wasn't necessary LindaF.

I have tried Sara's Red Velvet Cake and did not like it, no offense to Sara!! I found it way too dry. I used a modified cake mix version I found on here.

I don't really care if you think it was necessary or not. Because truly the same could be said back to you about your statement to me.

I am on several forums for different subjects. This is the only one where the written word gets so butchered. So yeah, after a while I get a little sick of seeing it. And quite frankly I believe it reflects more on the author's intelligence level than anything else. Unless someone has a keyboard where the caps key and all the punctuation keys are broken, I see no reason why some one could not write a coherent sentence.

weell the reason this site might have more bad puntuation and spelling, may be because were not english majors or computer geeks we come on here to ask cake questions. So if you have an awnser then be helpful, bu tif the post bugs you ignore it. just my 2 cents


sorry ive never made red velvet

Some people love this recipe, but I thought it was too crumbly. I tend to use a doctored cake mix when making red velvet cake. The only way to know if you like it or not is to give it a try. thumbs_up.gif

Martha's Stewart's recipe is really good.

i agree with candicemarie, we are here to ask questions and learn, now i no why so many people leave CC you have to watch your english and puntiation marks GOD FOR BID, theres no puntiation, and thank you (all the very nice and helpfull people for you reply)

mommynana Posted 7 Mar 2011 , 3:25am

au_decorator_76 would you happen to have that recipe if you don`t mind

sweetcakes Posted 7 Mar 2011 , 3:28am

I've made this recipe several times and all but one of my customers loved it. So now im searching for a new recipe to try as one complaint was one too many.

love2makecakes Posted 7 Mar 2011 , 3:37am

I happen to like the recipe. Two things though. I usually only bake 2 - 8" rounds with one batch not 2 - 9" rounds like the recipe says (I think...). Also you have to be very careful not to over bake the recipe. It will taste sort of burnt. I use it all the time with good results. Yes, I would say that it would seem dry compared to any doctored cake mix recipe, a lot of scratch cakes do. I find it is a recipe I wait till the last minute to bake as it does tend to dry out faster in my experience. It makes fabulous cake balls icon_smile.gif

I use Cakeman Raven's with a few tweaks. It seems to be a crowd pleaser.

As far as the punctuation goes, it is a proven fact that lack of punctuation, run-on sentences, and lack of capitalization are hard on the eyes. Any print media company will confirm this. With that being said, if you have the skills to write correctly and you are asking for help, it is a courtesy to your readers to write as well as you can. But, if english is your second language, or you can't spell, please ask anyway. I check my spelling and check all of my punctiation before I post, again, to make my posts easy to read. Just make sure you do the best that you can.

niccicola Posted 7 Mar 2011 , 12:28pm

I use Martha Stewart's recipe as well. It is not good for large sculpting projects, though. Very tasty!

(and LOL about the grammar/punctuation argument!)

adonisthegreek1 Posted 7 Mar 2011 , 2:01pm

I like Paula Deen's red velvet cake, but I use a cream cheese frosting. Her recipe is on Food Network's site. As far as grammar, I think a lot of people just write like they text. Everyone says I need to get on board with texting, but it hurts my feelings to use all of those abbreviations and sentence fragments. I don't judge anyone's writing. I think I am getting to the age where I need glasses. I make more mistakes now than I ever have.

I like Paula Deen'srecipe too and I generally do not like red velvet cake! It is very dense cake and MUST be served at room temp.

mommynana Posted 10 Mar 2011 , 2:38am
