I need to enhance a red velvet mix to be able to carve and also so it won't taste like a box mix.
I need to start baking now...
Have you tried Sarah's Red Velvet cake here on cake central... it is very good, moist, and easy to carve.
Good Luck with you cake!
I just did a 3 layer red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and
buttercream icing this weekend for my daughter-in-law's baby
shower. Everyone loved it!! It was very moist, but held up
very well in cutting. Here's my"recipe":
Mix one Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Red Velvet
Cake Mix with all ingredients on back of box, adding
extra 1 egg, 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 T oil (I always
use Canolo oil), and 1 small box instant white
Mix very well, and bake at 325 degrees.
