SMS Classic Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
I Love red velvet cake. It's my absolute favorite. And cream cheese icing-there is NOTHING BETTER. Well, I was so excited to make this recipe, I just got started. I was sure I had all of the important ingredients. Then, I pulled out my box of food coloring. To my dismay, all of the red was gone!!!!! This just about ruined the whole thing for me. Who wants brown velvet cake?? I had already started, so I forged on. Everything smelled good, so I figured it couldn't be that bad. When I made the frosting, I did end up adding an extra cup of powdered sugar to the recipe, because mine tasted too buttery. I know, too buttery? It sounds impossible, but it was too buttery. So, I thought this recipe turned out pretty well. The cake wasn't as light and fluffy as I am used to, but it was still very good. The frosting was excellent. Thanks to Rosy of Rosy Lips and Lavender for this week's choice. It was my family's (and mine) favorite thus far! You can find the recipe on her blog here.
