    I’m sorry for asking another question but how much cake do you think I would need to grind up in the food processor for the garnish. It’s ok if you don’t answer you have already helped me a lot and thank you for that. Your amazing! Thanks

    Hi again Gretchen. I’m going to be making your Red Velvet Cake for my friends birthday. I was wondering if the cream cheese icing and red velvet cake taste good with the butter cream. I don’t know because I’ve never tried red velvet cake or cream cheese icing. So I’d appreciate it if you could tell me. Thank you for all your time.

    I did this cake and it was a hit thank you…but here is the thing i use cake flour and i think it was too heavy.( just me). i know this is a dumb question but is regular flour better than cake flour?? will it make it lighter?? is just that is was on sale..lolol for my first time it was awesome but heavy.

      AP flour absorbs more liquid than cake flour, that is why it was heavy. This is a very liquidy batter so its best to stick to the recipe (or you get negative results)
