Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting for Jess
It was Jessie's birthday on Wednesday, so I made her Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting to celebrate.
The recipe I used for the cake was from pp 22-23 of Sugar Sugar by Kimberley Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero. You can find the recipe online here. The cream cheese frosting was the same one that I used here, except that I did add the butter and vanilla this time, making for a smoother, creamier frosting - proof that all ingredients have a purpose!
Here is Jessie holding up the first slice of cake, demonstrating the colour and crumb of the cake:
And the verdict? Voted delicious by everyone, and definitely a keeper red velvet recipe.
Happy birthday Jess!
