My cooking triumphs
When my daughter took the Dark Chocolate Cake II topped with Carol's Chocolate Cheese topping to school for her birthday. She was supposed to eat it with her classmates but the teacher smuggled whatever she can get her hands on back to the teacher's room.

Red Velvet Cupcakes
This is really easy to make compared to the recipes I tried previously. Cake was soft and moist. As recommended I only used 2 1/4 cup cake flour, buttermilk instead of milk and 1 tblsp of red coloring. But personally it was a tad too sweet for me. Maybe I'll use less sugar next time, there's definitely a lot more of next times. Oh and I've made similar frosting before but never with sour cream. That definitely made it tasted yummier!

Red Velvet Cake I
Cake: Made these as cupcakes for my daughter's birthday today. Followed recipe to the T except adding another tblsp cocoa powder and 1 1/2oz of coloring as that was the whole bottle. Was shocked when I had to use the whole bottle of the red coloring.....didn't realize 2oz is quite a lot. The cake was soft and moist even though I didn't use oil as other reviewers recommended. My kids loved them. Topping: Instead of cooling the flour mixture I just put it in the mixer until it cools down to room temperature and add the rest of the ingredients. It definitely taste like whipping cream. My only problem was it was overwhelmingly sweet. So to save the cream and cut down the sweetness, I used a package of cream cheese and 1/2c shortening. Beat the cheese and shortening in the mixer till lumps are gone and quite fluffy and add about 3/4 of the original topping and beat again till fluffy.

Clark Gable Pancakes
I've had this recipe for so long and have been making these again and again but I always forgot to leave a comment. My family just love these pancakes. They are just so easy to make. These babies will turn out thick but fluffy.
