Hi guys! This weekend I worked on a project along side my best friend that I’m so excited to share today.  Becoming Fab’s first Youtube Video!!!! YAY!!!! This is something that I have wanted to do for about 2 years now but never got around to doing it. This year I made the jump and decide to post a recipe for a yummy Red Velvet cake. Just in time for Valentine’s day.
Be sure to watch the video. And go ahead and show some love by commenting on YouTube and subscribing on YouTube. 
Also special thanks to Heather Laveaux for working with me again.  Go check out her site because she is amazing!

    Red velvet is my FAVORITE cake…but I am a horrible baker. I always say “I don’t bake, I burn”. Sad but true

  • Lynne

    I am smiling as I read this post, because I think I might have been the person who “introduced” you to Heather. I won a giveaway that included ad space on your blog, and I contacted you to see if it was OK if Heather used it. I had just “discovered” her 3 Octave Martini CD and thought it was so wonderful. You have made my day by mentioning that you guys still working together!

  • Sara Strauss

    This is wonderful!! This cake looks beyond delicious!! Sadly my oven is broken, so I’ll just be sitting here staring at this picture and video with my mouth watering! :)

  • Tammy

    I’m a southern girl and I love red devils cake!!! Yummy!! Thanks for sharing

  • Holy Craft

    Looks delicious! What a great valentine’s day treat! #sitsblogging

  • Tonya

    That looks good! I pinned it to my recipes board. I’m visiting from the SITS Comment Love Party.

  • frankaboutcroatia

    This sounds delicious. I am terrible baking, so on the rare occasions I do attempt to make a cake, I definitely need a video tutorial. Thanks for sharing!

    Glad to find your blog through SITS comment marathon.

  • Tonia

    That looks yummy! I’ve never had red velvet cake… think I might have to make one now!

  • Tammy Doiel

    Very nice video! I really need to learn how to do this! I need a good friend obviously. I’m stopping by from #SITSBlogging.

  • Reese

    So I’m definitely going to need you to come over here and make me some of that! Once this snow clears up of course! I’ve never even attempted Red Velvet cake before, but this post has piqued my interest. I love that you did a video tutorial. That is much appreciated! Thanks for sharing!

  • Trish

    Red Velvet is my FAVORITE. Your recipe looks very similar to mine so I’m thinking your cake came out super delicious! Kind jealous 😉

  • TerriAnn @ Driving Mama

    Congrats on your first video :) Seeing it like this is so different than just peeking at photos. That looks delish!

  • Trianna

    Great video! I think I’m the only one who doesn’t like red velvet, but my son adores it! It looks like it turned out great though. I hope you enjoyed it. :)

    Ha! Baking is the one thing I can do somewhat good but I always burn fried foods. I don’t think nothing is worst than burnt fried pork chops. lol

  • Tranae

    You totally introduced us Lynne. She is a major sweetheart. Thanks again for the support. :)

  • Tranae

    Oh no. We might have to get you an easy-bake oven 😉

  • Tranae

    Go for it!!!! The editing is the most time consuming part but it isn’t too bad. I can’t wait to do another one.

  • Tranae

    Southern girls rock :) I’m in ATL

  • Tranae

    Yes and making gift makes it extra special. I love homemade gifts.

  • Tranae

    Red velvet had to grow on me too. I think its all in the icing. The homemade kind tastes so much better than the kind from the store.

  • Tranae

    Thanks TerriAnn. I really enjoyed making the video and eating the cake :)

  • Tranae

    Red velvet cakes are the greatest. Its not to late to make one for Valentine’s day

  • Tranae

    OMG will the snow and ice ever go away. I’m so tired of being trapped in the house :)

    I think making a red velvet sounds scarier than it actually is. So go for it.

    Keep warm.

  • Tranae

    Hi Tammy. All you need is a camera, tripod, and some type of editing software. Its fairly easy to do. Just go for it.

  • Tranae

    Make it! It is so good. Your tastebuds will thank you. :)

  • Tranae

    Glad I could help. I’m a visual person too so having a video really helps.

  • Tranae

    Thanks for the pinterest love Tonya! I greatly appreciate it.

  • Tenns Reid

    I loves me some red velvet cake! :-) I recently made one myself for Christmas. I still have an extra layer of it in the freezer. I need to make another one and put the whole cake together!

    Red Velvet is so fitting for Valentine’s Day! Yours looks yummy btw!

  • Tranae

    Hey Tenns. How long will it last in the freezer? And is there any special way to prepare the cake for freezing?

  • Tenns Reid

    Hey! You can freeze cake for a good while in the freezer actually. My rule of thumb is no more than a couple months tops. I wrapped mines in Saran wrap and then foil, and stored it near the back of the freezer to stay extra cold.

  • Wendy Kaufman

    My husband loves red velvet, and since we’re snowed in I think the kids and I will use your recipe to make him an early Valentine’s Day gift. We like to use beet to color the cake!

  • ThaunaK

    Yum, that looks delicious!!

  • BlushandBarbells

    Save me a slice or three. I’ll be right over, haha.

  • Tamara Willis

    I love Red Velvet Cake! Thanks for the awesome recipe! I also love the table setup that you did w/ the candles & hearts!

  • Wendy Cushing

    Yum! I want a bite of your Red Velvet Cake now! Greta job on your first youtube video too.


    All these years I thought my husband hated red velvet so I never bothered to bake it. Just recently he mentioned he loved it & I was shocked. I apparently didn’t know he loves it but only if it’s really moist.
    So I guess I need to try it now!

    Thanks Tammile. I can’t wait to make another video

  • Tranae

    Thanks for the tip. This is going to come in handy during the holidays :)

  • Tranae

    Using beets sound like good alternative. I’ve never tried it that way but now I’m curious. Does it change the taste of the cake?

  • Tranae

    Thank you!

  • Tranae

    haha the more the merrier

  • Tranae

    Thanks Tamara.

  • Tranae

    Thanks Wendy! I can’t wait to get started on the next video

    This looks adorable though I doubt about if it tastes good being red. I’ll attempt this for our next date night.
