Red Velvet Cake: One day after dinner my daddy said let’s do something and next thing I know he pulled out a bag of ingredients and said LETS MAKE VELVET CAKE!!! So we got all the ingredients and mixed them together and I and my sister took turns mixing. Next we preheated the oven and put the batter in a pan we put in in the oven and waited an hour. While we waited we cleaned our mess. When the timer went off the cake was ready. We took it out and let it cool, then we ate it. It was delicious. By Briana Brown, Grade 5, PA Cyber, Mrs. Fededles
