  1. aaaaa,
    I have what I think is a good recipe. right now I am at work but I will be home tonight and I can email it to you. If you think it is good, I will post it. Are you ok with that? How soon do you want the recipe? I rarely post and not sure if members can get each other's email but if you go to my website,, there is a "contact me" button and you can view my email there.

    1. Here's a link to Simply Recipes food blog. I made these for Valentine's Day and thought they were wonderful. I don't like dry cake at all and these were not.


        This is a GREAT one!!! Follow the delish!!

        1. I made the following red velvet cake from smitten kitchen a few weeks ago:

          as reviewed by amateurgourmet

          It received rave reviews from everyone and it was the first from scratch layer cake I've ever made. It was moist and really really good. My one note is that it was better the second day so if possible definitely bake the layers one day in advance. It stayed moist for days. Also, if you are a bit of a cake frosting novice, I would double the frosting recipe. That way, there will be plenty and you can eat or destroy the extra.
