Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake- Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Today I have a lovely red velvet cake for you people, a moist and soft red velvet cake! I am not an artist, and I don’t even have the patience to frost cakes elegantly. This cakes demand your attention a lot. But I didn’t do a very good job of  frosting the cake. And Christmas is near by, when we think about christmas, we think of family, good foods, good drinks and of course most important good cakes. In this joyful season I would love to serve a cake that is sexy, elegant, lascivious and irresistibly seductive. The detailed recipe with step by step cooking pictures follows.

Red velvet is an all time favourite at my home. A rich red sponge cake topped with a cool cream cheese white frosting, this delicious cake is an impressive choice for any occasion. This cake can be kept in an airtight container for up to 2 or 3 days, store somewhere cool. To achieve the classic bright red sponge we would recommend that you use red food colouring gel as opposed to the liquid version, the gel will holds its colour better when baked, simply add as much or as little as you need to reach your desired colour.

Tips- This recipe also makes cupcakes in muffin case size. Follow the recipe measures and instructions exactly, especially if it’s the first time you are baking a red velvet cake. Sifting aerates the ingredients to ensure a good textured cake. Sift the flour and all dry ingredients to remove lumps and blend ingredients together.
