Hi all. I think this might be my first question on Cake Central.
I am doing a rehearsal dinner cake for a couple. The wanted a 12" round triple layer red velvet cake.
Does anyone have a good recipe for a red velvet for a 12" pan that is sturdy enough for 3 layers?
Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks so much! Do you by any chance recall how much batter the recipe yields?

I have tried many RV recipes, and my favorite is Cake Man Raven's RV cake! Its a super moist buttermilk cake, with just a hint of chocolate. RV more of a buttermilk cake and has origins in the south. Look for recipes that do have buttermilk, and light on the cocoa powder! I have double this cake and it worked great! It yields about 6 cups of batter. Enough for 2 8in cakes, or 3 6in cakes. A 12in cake takes about 7 1/2 cups of batter, so you can easily make 2 double recipes and have 3 nice size layers, with a little extra! (this cake is soo good it doesnt even need icing!)

If I remember correctly it was perfect for a 12 inch round and a 6 inch but that was a 2 inch deep pan. If its a 3 I'd say just the 12
