Made these for my family for Valentines, did not have the little cookies for the top so I just did the dusting of confectioner's sugar using a little stencil I cut. They came out wonderful, moist and tasty. Had not made velvet cake before, will definitely make again. Also found the mix of vinegar and baking soda to the batter interesting.
