Pink Velvet buttermilk WASC

I only have one question. How much cocoa do I add in? It is 1/4 tsp, 1/4 Tbsp, 1/4 C? I was going to make the cake, however due to this slight mix up I couldn't. Will you please let me know what the right amount to put in is.... Thanks..


if you dont have parchment paper can you use shortening and flour like any other cake ? Im guessing this is enough batter for either 3 - 8" pans or 2- 10" pans right? Thanks..


According to most "velvet" type cakes, the correct measurement would be 1/4 CUP of cocoa powder. With this much cake mix and flour, in the recipie, the cocoa color would be almost lost, enabling the pink color. Hope it helps!!


My experience with any cake with chocolate or a lot of fruit or nuts is parchment paper is a must or it will stick. I use equal parts flour, vegetable oil, and vegetable shortening mixed together as a cake release and it works beautifully except in the cases mentioned above.


I also wanted to know what WASC stands for? Also, two boxes of mix, plus 2 cups of flour, what size cake do you usually make with this?? Thanks, sounds great.


I really like this cake--it smells delicious while baking. It has a nice, dense texture. I torted it as well as a chocolate cake and filled between each layer with chocolate and raspberry. i alternated the layers--pink velvet, chocolate, pink velvet, and chocolate. Very pretty when cut.
