Baking is something I have been meaning to try for a long time. Once started, I wondered why I hadn't tried it before and learnt baking is nothing to be anxious about. My first cake was made for my little girl's first birthday, a good way to remember the milestone but I seem to have forgotten what recipe I had used then. I have experimented on a few different cakes but with a chocoholic at home haven't ventured too far :) Also never managed to venture much into the decorating/icing part. I tried store bought icing and several other decorations for my daughter's third birthday. Result as below:
Now on to the recipe. Red velvet cake is something I first had when a co-worker brought it to work in Greensboro. Simply loved it. I have been searching for a perfect recipe for a long time now and finally stumbled on this website. Pretty much followed their very popular recipe. I am still in the look out for a perfect cream cheese frosting recipe though.
Here is a warm welcome back to my blog with this nice piece of cake and a cherry on the top :)
