Cake Time!Posted: February 28, 2012
Thanks to my brother, I have a Saveur subscription. Most of the time the features are all about meat, so I rarely partake, but the baking sections are usually amazing. The latest issue focuses on Southern cakes and the cover photo of a slice of red velvet cake made me drool. With my sister over on Saturday, we decided to have a little fun. While not super frugal, one whole cake is pretty much the cost of a single slice at a restaurant so…BAKE! We made a coconut cake on Saturday and a red velvet on Sunday…highly recommended. The recipes were followed to the letter—except I recommending halving the frosting recipe. There was way too much frosting for the coconut cake and I ended up halving the frosting for the red velvet with a lot left over, so unless you really want to load up your cake, half it! Also, follow the 4 cake baking tips they offer – I think they made a huge difference.
