Red Velvet Cake - Foodhistorian's Inaugural Mission

Shortly after foodhistorian.com opened the electronic doors in 2008, we were asked for help determining the origins and ingredients for an authentic red velvet cake. Our findings were to be used to settle a brother-in-law / sister-in-law debate.

Here is our report with the red velvet cake basics, suggestions for exploring red velvet cake in more detail yourself, and links to various red velvet cake recipes we found. Our recommendation is to follow one or more of these recipes, enjoy the cake(s) with friends and family, and hope that settling all family debates is this simple and this delicious! Donielle - I hope this arrives in time to be helpful!

So NOW what?

Thanksgiving is behind us now and what to do with all that's left? Here in our home, once we've had our fill of turkey sandwiches with Hellmann's REAL mayonnaise (of course!) on fresh, squishy white bread, we make turkey stock and then it's promptly on to turkey pot pie and squash soup for us.

Because we're basically all incredibly tired of turkey at this point, making a giant pot of soup now seems pointless so we reserve enough stock for the squash soup (about 5 cups) and the turkey pot pie (about 2 cups) and we simply freeze the remaining stock for some wonderful Winter soup cookery.

Here's how we do it.
