The Velvet Cake Collection.

My attempt at developing a great Red Velvet Cake was such a success that I couldn’t stop there. The texture was so light, moist and tender that I couldn’t help but try other flavour variations.

Since then, I’ve had additional success with lemon, orange and even white (vanilla) versions of this delicious cake. I love lime so with the success of the other citrus versions, that idea was a no-brainer. The raspberry version was an attempt to make a pink cake that worked quite well. I’ve found the best color comes from fresh raspberries in that recipe.

The chocolate version too a bit more tweaking but I had so many requests from readers of Rock Recipes that I just had to perfect that version too. these all taste phenomenal but I think people are really in love with the light, moist texture of these cakes, which is the key to their success.

Pick your favorite version or try them all. They all make outstanding choices for birthday cakes too; one of these will almost certainly please any taste. Am I done with variations of this recipe yet? Maybe not…I already have an idea for another one.

No book contains all of the flavour versions. Plus all of our 2000 online recipes are not contained in my books. Thats impossible considering we add new ones every week.
