Red Velvet Cake

Happy Valentine’s day! Yeah this post is a day late, just got busy yesterday and didn’t get  a chance to put this up. I decided to try out a Red Velvet cake recipe for valentine’s day:) This particular recipe is from a mix of different recipes, lol.  I just enjoy mixing things up and adding my own twist. My frosting is kinda sour sweet, I prefer this to a very sweet frosting.

I was pleased with the end results but when I bake this next time I will try it with shortening just to see the difference in taste. This is what the final product looked like:)  Ignore my mediocre attempt at frosting the cake, it kinda makes the cake look crooked right? I did this around 4:30 am, so I was kinda half asleep. I am taking some classes on cake decorating next month so i’ll get better.

One of my  favorite picture of me and my hubby and a slice the cake

Wanna try it out?

Ingredients:

2 grams of all purpose flour(sifted)

1 stick of unsalted butter (room temp)

2 cups of sugar (sifted)

1 tablespoon cocoa

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

2 cup buttermilk

1 table spoon vinegar

2 oz of red coloring

1 cup of vegetable oil

Frosting:

8oz cream cheese

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups of confectioners sugar (sifted)

1 stick of unsalted butter (room temp)

Set in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I base my baking pans with shortening and flour and then parchment paper over it.

Using my hand mixer, I creamed the butter and the sugar in a large bowl. I added the egg mix little by little into the mix.Then I added the flour, salt, cocoa together in a bowl. I mixed the red coloring with the buttermilk and vinegar. In 3 parts I added the liquid mix and the flour mix into my creamed mix. I then added the oil in and finally the vinegar. I divided my mix into 2 baking pans before putting in the oven.

Using  a mixer cream the cream cheese and butter. Add the vinegar and in four parts add the sifted confectioners sugar.
