Hello Fellow CC'ers!

Could someone please tell me which red velvet cake recipe is the best to use for weddings? Also can you cover red velvet cake with white fondant without the red color bleeding through?

Yes, you can cover it in white fondant. It won't bleed through.

Ugh, the last red velvet wedding cake I did was like 11 cakes that fit together like a puzzle. It was a version of Colette Peter's Puzzle Cake. That monster was covered in white fondant without any problems.

The recipe my brides overwhelmingly choose (thankfully, mostly for groom's cakes, LOL) is Sarah's Red Velvet Cake - Tweaked. Link here:

I will have to try yours the next time I have to make a RV cake, pterrell.

Cakeman Raven's is wonderful! I do add 3 tablespoons of cocoa instead of just the 1tsp., but thats my kid's preference. He also has the best cream cheese frosting. You can find the recipe on food tv or I can post it.

Two of the Wedding Cakes in my photos are Red Velvet w/cream cheese icing covered in Fondant.
Just be sure that since the cream cheese frosting is so heavy that you refridgerate the cake well before you put the fondant on it.

I did a red and white polka dot wedding cake (in my gallery) that was also red velvet and cream cheese filling on the inside! You CAN cover a red velvet cake in white fondant, but you have to work very neat and clean to keep those pesky red crumbs outta your fondant!!! Best bet is to put a nice thick layer of BC over the cake, then cover with an equally thick layer of fondant.

Again, very messy...but you can do it!
