Lemon Pound Cake III
I made this cake and it was exactly what I had a taste for. I used a cup of sweet creamed butter in the place of the shortening and the consistency was perfect (it reminded me of my grandmother's cake). I also used fresh squeezed lemons along with lemon zest in the cake for some extra tartness and was very satisfied with the results. I look forward to making this cake again.

Red Velvet Cake
I personally do not like red velvet cake but every year my son's best friend request that I make him one. I can honestly say that this is the perfect recipe! Not only did my son's friend love it but my boyfriend devoured the one that I made for him. I even made one to take to a friend's house for a gathering and received rave reviews. This cake came out perfect, it was moist, the perfect shade of red, not too heavy and the consistency was just right. I may not care for the cake myself but I will definitly be using this recipe when I make it again.
