Blue Velvet Cake

This one comes from the Food Network. Duff from Ace of Cakes was on a Paula Deen show. Overall a quality cake that tastes just like it came from the bakery. You can tell it's homemade and not from a box. It should be that way since it came from Duff, the cake guru! It does take a little time to make this, but it's worth it if you want the real thing. The addition of the baking soda/vinegar combination adds a nice touch. The cake is extremely moist but does not fall apart. I used two 8-inch cake pans and cooked the cake about 30-35 minutes - just made a 2-layer cake instead of a 3-layer one. I did not use pecans. If you don't have a one pound box of powdered sugar, just use about 3 cups from a bag. This cake tastes even better chilled the next day. Next time I'm going to try to make the frosting without coconut so it's just a basic cream cheese one. The melted marshmallows in the frosting aren't too bad either! You can use less blue food coloring and sub the rest with water if you want.
