Recipes - Red (or Blue) Velvet Cake

Red (or Blue) Velvet Cake

7th May 2020, 2:26 PM
I figure this type of cake would be popular as a gender reveal cake for baby showers if you're into gender reveals. Plus, I figure, if something is going to be red why not have it TASTE red? I also noticed that for blue foods, raspberry is a popular flavor for them. Word of advice for red velvet cake; either use cream cheese or white chocolate buttercream or don't put nothing on. No other buttercream will do.

If you have a recipe to share, let me know through social media or a private message and I will make a recipe card for it here on the site and feature it.

Update: If making a 9 inch round cake, raise the temperature to 350.

Yeah, I thought of doing that too, but I felt gender reveal would be more fun since baby showers require cake.

No, you can't have a baby shower without cake. That's like having Christmas without cookies.

And you are right about the cream cheese and white chocolate buttercream. I have made many a cake in my day and no other type of buttercream works.

Oh yes. Cream cheese is my favourite with red velvet.

Sour milk is what milk becomes when you add vinegar to it then let it stand for a bit. It is 1 cup of milk per 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
