    Larinda:

    The pix are on my hard drive; Spitfire has PM'd me some code advice, and given me the heads-up about how to use it. I will practice new skill later, if possible, and try to replace link with photo.

    Thanks.

    This thread reminds me of the USADance chapter dances in Tucson which features a desert pot luck, you bring in a desert and get three dollars off the admission.

    A friend swears he's doing this for his daughter's $30K wedding. She is less enthusiastic. Can't imagine why. Right now, that looks tasty.

    Been ages since I made one, but if memory serves, basics of red velvet are chocolate cake and about 18 bottles of red food coloring, with cream cheese frosting on top. :)

    hrmmm, might be a good candidate for the baileys cream cheese frosting....

    Lol...funny.

    Always loved suzy-Qs growing up, but they can't compare to homemade whoopie pies. Will have to drum up a photo for those tomorrow.

    The distinctive ingredients in the batter that I always remember are red food coloring, cocoa, and white vinegar.

    But it's the frosting that always made it for me - we always made a boiled milk/flour mixture that, when cooled, is added to a buttercream to stablize it. Makes it taste very light, fres, and fluffy, and less sweet (I don't care for sugary frostings...). Same frosting goes to fill my whoopie pies.

    Had red velvet cake as my wedding cake way back when...always my fave cake growing up!

    Whoopie pies! A regional dessert thingy that, when you grow up with it, it's the ultimate comfort food. Commercial versions just don't cut it.

    A true (red velvet) cake story:

    In my protected childhood I had never had red velvet cake. As young newlywed I was going to bake a birthday cake for the wife and asked what she wanted, white, yellow, or chocolate. Red velvet was the request, and I set out to the grocery store.

    Well, long story short, My cooking prowess was limited to prefab and "some assembly required," and red velvet doesn't come in a cake mix (or at least none to be found here in northwest Florida). So I got the only red cake mix to be found and a can of white frosting.

    The wife was quite disappointed with her strawberry flavored and vanilla frosted cake. Somehow our marriage survived. :together:

    The world’s largest ice-cream cake was made by the Chinese last year and holds a Guinness world record till now. The cake was about 4.8 metres (15.7 feet) long, 3 metres (9.8 feet) wide, 1 metre (3.3 feet) high and weighed 8 tons (7,257 kg).

    It took about 20 people who worked for nineteen days and nineteen years to bake this cake. The colorful cake had cute teddies marked out in cream and could serve 32,000 people!
