Making a red velvet cake or any cake for that matter

Making a red velvet cake or any cake for that matter

Cakes make people happy. That is simply a truism. I don’t know why but a cake can put a smile on the face of the meanest grump. (Not that you freely associate with grumps, right?) So take a cake, add a birthday and you get a really happy person.

(Well maybe the layer cake part since baking in an oblong pan is way more efficient and a lot easier.) And here is why: I always start with a mix. It is easy, it is cheap, and with a few special add-ins, it tastes wonderful.
