RED VELVET CAKE AND WHITE ICING

Linda Shipman

By

My aunt had traveled to Indiana to take my grandmother to visit her father right after WWII. They stopped at a very nice restaurant and they tried the cake which was so good that she asked the chef for the recipe and he was kind enough to share it with my aunt.
The day my aunt gave me the recipe for this Red Velvet Cake she stressed to me that it was just as important to mix the ingredients as directed as it is to add the right ingredients. I have made this recipe many times and it has never failed for me.
