there is a bakery in New Orleans called Gambinos. They used to make a pink velvet cake but no longer sell it. It is my mothers all time favorite. She is very ill and I would love to makeone for her. I am desperate for help. I have tried a few recipes from the web bit they just weren't the same.

Could you ask the owners what they used to make it?

I use cake man raven's recipe for red velvet cake, and instead of using red coloring, I use a teaspoon of gel colors, dissolved in a tablespoon of hot water. This recipe is the closest thing I have found to a real RV cake, as it uses little cocoa, and is all about the buttermilk! I am from MS gulf coast, I know of the cake icon_smile.gif I think finding their exact recipe will be impossible, and I am pretty sure they wont just give it away!

I don't know their recipe, but I have a really yummy pink velvet recipe if you'd like it...it uses white chocolate instead of cocoa powder. It's a delicate cake with a great flavour and it stands up to icing very nicely.

Did you call Gambinos to ask if they would make one special for her?

I was just thinking about their New Orleans Doberge cakes. Another thread was talking about 7 layer cakes.

I'm sorry to hear you Mom is ill. I hope she is better soon.

Anne Heap (Pink Cake Box) makes a pink velvet. I'm pretty sure it's red velvet, but with pink coloring. I did a quick Google search and another CC member said to leave out the red and use Americolor electric pink food coloring.

what type of frosting did you use?

AI used chocolate ganach

I tried the pink velvet cake recipe recently in the giant cupcake pan as I thought it would be a little more dense than my yellow cake. It had a beautiful crumb and texture. I frosting it just with regular vanilla buttercream. It was a test cake so it sat around for a while until I brought it into work. It stayed moist and delicious for almost a week (until it was gone). I would definitely make it again.

ACan you please tell me how much batter this would make? Would it be good enough for a 10inch round cake?
