Red velvet cake is David’s favorite. One layer of our wedding cake was red velvet. He loves the red velvet donuts from Donut Hole — I’ve even attempted to make homemade red velvet donuts, but they turned out more chocolate-y than red velvet-y.
So, a couple of years ago I decided to try my hand at baking a red velvet cake for David’s birthday. I was a little intimidated at first, and I opted not to do layers (only people on TV make cakes with layers!). But, equipped with my handy-dandy Kitchenaid mixer, I managed to make the cake and it came out great!
This year for Thanksgiving I made another one. And I even felt ready to make the layers!
In short, it’s much easier to make than you would think to make a layered red velvet cake — and it’s delicious!
And to prove how easy it is, I even made a video! Enjoy. 🙂
