GASP!!  A cake mix, Jen??  Just kiddin with ya.  One of my favs is the Darn Good Choc Cake from the Cake Mix Doctor.  Pair it with a good ganache and I am in heaven.

Do you use all of the butter in the WCCC BC?  I made it the first time yesterday to pair with the Silver Palate Carrot Cake that Jeanne posted.  I will post a review on the carrot cake post later.  Anyway, on its own I tasted the butter a little too much for my liking but less when I tried it with the cake.  But I think I could still stand to reduce the butter a little.  And it turned out a little thin for me.  But it could have been a combination of me rushing and not letting the WC cool enough and my butter being too soft.

My fav RV recipe is from Marcy Goldman.  I hesitated posting this since you have to pay to get the recipe from her website.  But let me know if you are interested and I can ask her if I can post it.  It has quite a bit of cocoa and you can taste it but not so much that it tastes like a chocolate cake.  I think the debate on whether or not RV should taste like vanilla or choc (or whether it should have cream cheese or old-fashioned frosting) will go on forever.  I don’t know which is correct but I just know what I like.  This one also has sour cream and butter in it and no buttermilk or vinegar.

i learned the hard way that if you don’t combine the ingredients in the right order it will never come together!  in order to remedy my weeoy, badly made wccc bc i mixed a batch of mousseline and gradually added the soft wccc. it’s not as tangy as the original, but still v good.  if it’s only a matter of being too warm you can cool in fridge an rebeat OR beat over a bowl of ice.

I’m in the same boat.  Is anyone able to send the red velvet cake recipe to me?  Having read this forum any number of times and hear people talking about it, I am at the stage where I am dying to try it.

I am in the process of reworking the Red Velvet recipe due to a few errors I found on some of the different pan size calculations.
I would appreciate it if the recipe was not posted.
Thank you,
Lori V.
