A red velvet cake is my go to recipe for events that ask me to bring something to share. The layered red velvet cake is quite intriguing with its bright red colour contrasting with fluffy white cream cheese frosting. Its flavour is also a mystery to those who have yet to taste a red velvet cake. The key is a mix of cocoa powder and vanilla flavour, with a buttermilk tanginess too.
If you’re after a recipe for red velvet cupcakes instead, I have one of those for you too!
