My Girl Paula: Red Velvet Cake



This week's My Girl, Paula! is "Holiday Baking," so I made one of Paula Deen's red velvet cake recipes.  Instead of cupcakes, I poured the batter into three 8" round pans for a nicer presentation.  Don't you love cutting into a cake and finding three layers instead of three?  'Cause I sure do!  Sorry there's no picture of the inside-- this cake was made for a co-worker.  I don't think he would've appreciated it if I had cut into the cake before he brought it to his party.  Had I the forsight, there would be pictures of the cake while I was stacking and frosting it.  With its vivid red layers sandwiched between thick layers of creamy white frosting, it's a showstopper!  Head on over to the My Girl, Paula! site to check out the other delicious Paula Deen desserts made by our members this week!
