SUYR: Desserts, Yum!

If Kelly can keep up the food posts for Show Us Your Life Fridays, well, I will linking up all the time!

I love to bake and sadly it does show. . . but this is one of my first desserts that I made when I was in high school and has made it’s appearance at Christmas quite often.

Red Velvet Cake

1 box of German Chocolate Cake mix (I prefer Pillsbury for this recipe)                                                                            1 cup of sour cream                                                                1/2 cup water                                                                          1/4 cup vegetable oil                                                                  1 bottle (1 oz) red food color                                                     3 eggs

Heat oven to 350* and oil and sugar/flour two 9 inch pans, mix ingredients together, divide evenly between the two pans and bake for 25 to 30 minutes
The recipe was given to me by a teacher when we were doing a unit on following directions. There are a ton of steps to make the cake and the icing however, after doing the assignment I opted to go with a cream cheese frosting! I have made this recipe as a layer cake, cupcakes and cake pops. I think my favorite is the cupcakes, easier to frost.
Let it cool completely before frosting and enjoy!


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
