An Oldie But Goodie

Mary has got a RUBY TUESDAY Party goin' on over at her place
Please stop by and take a look.
Greetings Friends~ ~ ~

I'm joining in the fun today over at Designs By Gollum for Foodie Friday.

Please stop over and see the links for everyone who is sharing.

Mixing up something good.

This is one of my favorite cakes of all time. The china was a flea market find.

Four dessert plates for $4.50?? Who could pass that up? Not me.

Love the pink roses. Got the sugar bowl at the same place. Great day.

How about a closer look.

Let us eat cake!

This one turned out really well. Sometimes I get busy doing something totally unrelated and bake it a little too long. Nothing worse then dry cake but this cake was perfecto.

My recipe is from a book I bought in the 60's when I was in high school. Yeah, yeah, do the math. This is the BEST frosting for a Red Velvet Cake. If you are using the cream cheese recipe try this one just once and you'll be hooked!

I have made some changes over the years and hope you will love this recipe too.

Make it a Wonderful weekend~ ~ ~Ahrisha~ ~ ~

You made a great looking Red Velvet cake!

Mary said...

It looks fabulous. You did a terrific job with the decorating. It's amazing that you still have the original recipe book. As to the 60's - if you were still in high school you are a baby :-).

Ahrisha, you are certainly invited to join Ruby Tuesday but I need a piece of that RED velvet cake first!! Ha! You need no invitation really, just join in and we'll all be glad to have you! :)

Looks yummy! Red velvet cake is my sister's favorite cake and we'd have it every year to celebrate her birthday. I miss it!


Britt said...

Oh my goodness! I will definitely have to stay away from your blog -- it is making me so hungry! :) I think I will definitely have to make some red velvet cake soon and try your frosting!

You cake looks really good. The dishes are lovely! I am so excited to have you as a follower. Your blog is cute:)

I don't think Cream Cheese Frosting is necessarily the best option for red velvet cake either... I like to serve cover mine with vanilla buttercream (Italian Meringue BC). EVERYONE LOVES IT!
