You must believe me, this cake is truly a powerful cake. It’s the best Red Velvet I’ve had, and I’ve had quite a few. I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen (a new favorite site; beautiful, with great recipes) and I fully support Deb’s icing calculations. It seems like too little when you make it, but it’s just enough to ice the cake and the end result is an icing/cake ratio that’s perfectly balanced. So if you need to bribe some catsitters, or you just want to treat yourself to a Southern delicacy, do it Red Velvet style. You won’t regret it.
