[quote name='gus_tatory' date='Sep 3 2006, 09:43 AM'][quote name='Ling' date='Aug 29 2006, 01:04 AM']i'm only on page three of this blog, and i am enamoured of this peach photo--i think i may make it my desktop if you guys are okay with that.
and which red velvet cake recipe did you use--the Recipe Gullet one by Jaymes, or another? can't wait to continue reading...
I feel privileged that you think that photo is nice enough for your desktop! Please go ahead and use it.
I Photoshopped the picture to make it a little brighter. I think it looks a little better now.
I used Jaymes's recipe for the Red Velvet cake, with the following adjustments:
-increase by 1 tbsp cocoa
-lower amount of oil to 1 3/4 cup
-decrease sugar in cake to 1 1/2 cup
-when the cakes come out of the oven, wrap them in plastic wrap to "steam" them for a bit...(as I mentioned before, technique comes from a Scott Wooley recipe)
For the icing, I used:
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 lb cream cheese
8 oz softened unsalted butter
bit of vanilla
