Which Red Velvet Cake Recipe?

Basically, do you trust Buddy Valastro's recipes? My daughter wants an RVC for her birthday. I've never "gotten" them so I've never made one and I don't want to get into a discussion of food coloring, but she's a fan of Cake Boss and I was wondering if I can trust this recipe:

I'm also considering this recipe from the Loveless Cafe in Nashville. It's different from most RVC recipes, but I like the idea of using brown sugar. I'm curious about the 2 extra egg yolks, though.

Any thoughts?

  1. I have tried two versions of Red Velvet, one that I got from this site and the other from Cook's Illustrated. I did like the one provided on this site, it was fast and easy and loved the icing.

    I did like the Cook's Illustrated as well, it had a cream cheese icing.
