His results - Heritage Red Velvet Cake
This was OK... It was a tasty cake but a bit dense. The vinegar and soda thing is weird and ineffective leavening technique. The frosting is insanely rich and sweet and the recipe makes double what you need. Fostings like these don't exist in british baking so I suppose that goes some way to explain why I don't really have a taste for them. My frosting was also very runny even with a a bit more than the suggested icing sugar.
It was a tasty enough cake but, with a few tweaks, could be a lot better. I'd look elsewhere for a red velvet recipe really...
