I love a good layer cake but around my house, an 8 or 9-inch layer cake is going to sit around and harden into a logger's wedge. You know what I mean you always end up with that slice or two that hangs around taunting you...frosting starting to crack…you end up shoveling it in your mouth while standing over the kitchen sink after walking in the door from work…No? Maybe it is just me. Red Velvet Cake recipe to me it tastes the closest to what I remember as a child, and it was easy to half the recipe. I have been using her recipe for years. It is always delicious. I don't make the traditional frosting we prefer Cream Cheese Frosting which is simple enough. Cream together 4 oz. of cream cheese and 1 stick of butter. Once that is creamed together add 1/2 lb of confectioner sugar a little at a time and beat well incorporating the sugar into the butter and cheese add 1 tsp. vanilla extract and blend in well until your frosting reaches a good spreadable consistency.
