Hi Kelli, what is the amount of baking soda? On my computer it looks like this: 1&frac;baking soda. Was this a misprint or is my computer the culprit. Anyway, they look delicious and I want to make them. I never thought of making them from scratch that way. I would have gone out and bought a cake mix. Thanks, Terry

One of my sons would request RV cake for his birthdays. The only time I made it, usually.

No that, my dear is a nostalgic phrase if ever I've heard one.
"New bike." I know exactly how happy he will be!

I don't think I've ever had red velvet cake before. It looks simply divine, and oh so - Valentine's Day like. I made some heart sugar cookies on Sunday afternoon, and decorated them with cream cheese frosting. They are so yummy.
Happy Birthday Benjamin! A new bike! Wow! Happy Riding!

Happy Birthday Benjamin! Too bad Kaia's class doesn't allow homeade treats, I'll just stick to the string cheese I signed up for.

I'm so excited about this recipe!!! My husband has mentioned, oh, at least a dozen time since we've been married (3 years now), how he loves red velvet cake. I don't have all the ingredients for it this week (don't keep buttermilk on hand), but his birthday is coming at the end of the month... this will be perfect! What fun to surprise him! :) Thanks!
