  1. Very, very excited to try this out! I’ve never had much success making red velvet (without the buttermilk & trying substitutions on my own, has never worked out for me!). This one looks super promising! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. They’re in the oven and they smell great!

  3. Baking déjà vu, when half way through the bake time, you remember that you made this recipe before, and it was a failure.
    I baked it in two 9″ pans and each layer is only 1″ high and very dense. Not at all what I had hoped for.

    For frosting the cake, you will need to make 1.5x or double batch. I also used less honey and more powdered sugar. They honey imparted an odd taste to the tofutti.
