I had always believed that the Red Velvet Cake is a Southern Cake. Today, I found a signed copy of the Waldorf Astoria Cookbook by former Executive Chef John Doherty, and he claims that the red beet-colored favorite is an original Waldorf creation.
I don't consider this as one of my best work, but a typical "rushed work"..When we decided to attend the Oklahoma Sugar Show, I decided, I might as well bring a cake. It was a very hectic 2 weeks at school, and after being a day late of the final submission of registrations, I ordered the styrofoam, decided on the color of my cake, and started piping. There was no expectation of winning, just the experience and joy of participation. There were so many limiting circumstances, and to my surprise I made an "honorable mention" ribbon.
