A Crowd Pleasing Trend: The Red Velvet Wedding Cake
Semi Naked Red Velvet Cake | Cravings Journal
Hi friends! This cake was literally a piece of cake to make because we started with a quality cake mix from World Market! We simply mixed up according to directions and baked in three 8inch round pans. And while you can make the buttercream frosting that comes with the mix, we chose to make a delicious Cream Cheese Frosting to go with! I just LOVE the combination of red velvet and cream cheese.
My nephew Wyett married his fiance Kelli yesterday and Kelli asked if I would make the cake for them, I happily said yes and here it is. She wanted a red velvet naked cake with cream cheese frosting. You can find the recipe I used for the cake here and you can find the recipe for the frosting below. My sister in law Laurie helped put the flowers on the cake and I think it came out really cute. Congrats to Wyett and Kelli!
I turned 30! Red velvet cakes have cacao powder and also vinegar which gives it a lovely taste and texture. If you want to cover the sides completely then follow the procedure shown in the carrot cake recipe.
