Rose has a Red Velvet Cake recipe in “Rose’s Heavenly Cakes”—many people here on the forum have baked it and really like it. I haven’t made it myself, though. If you don’t have her book and don’t have access to a library that does, you can try this recipe: http://pinchmysalt.com/red-velvet-cake-recipe/ I’ve made it before and really liked it, although I used a different frosting.
I just made mini cupcakes from Rose’s HC book. They were very moist and yummy. I frosted them with white chocolate creamcheese. Everybody loved it. However, I was struggle with cupcakes pulling away from liners.
