Waldorf Astoria Red Cake
October 05, 2002

My mother also makes this cake. We called it Red Velvet Cake. It is to die for. Remember the grooms cake from Steel Magnolias? Same cake. You can make it into an Armadello or not. :) Pure heaven... and sin. The frosting can be a little tricky, but worth it. (Think cream cheese frosting for carrot cake, it just isn't good without it.) Make this cake once and you will HAVE to make it again. Save it for special occasions so you only have to go through all of that food coloring once or twice a year or so. Great for Birthday cakes and Valentine's Day.
