Yeah, I finally did it! Making a red velvet cake has been a far off goal that I've had for some time but this past weekend gave me the perfect opportunity (wow, that sentence was ugly...). Anyway, Cams put on the baker girl uniform and off we went!
The scary thing about this cake is the crazy amount of red food coloring (1 oz.) that you pour into the batter... it has to be unhealthy, although once you commit to baking a cake you've pretty much thrown health concerns out the window.
A funny thing happened while making the cream cheese frosting. I was supposed to make a batch and a half of the frosting, all the reviews I had read suggested making one and a half times the given amount to properly cover the three layer cake. Well, since math isn't my strong suit I accidently TRIPLED the batch...not exactly a terrible problem to have if you ask me...
So what was the occasion for this cake and crazy amount of frosting? Why, Nanny's birthday of course! Happy Birthday, Mom!
I just had to throw this picture in... kids + goggles= funny!
