I was scheduled to work this weekend and unexpectedly got called off (yay!). I have been wanting to bake a red velvet cake for quite some time now so I decided this was the perfect time. And with Valentine’s Day around the corner, this is the perfect festive cake for such occasion.
This was my first time baking a red velvet, and there are countless recipes out there so I took to Pinterest and chose a recipe with the prettiest picture. 🙂
I used this recipe. The cake was moist, however it had too much of a cocoa taste to it. I prefer my red velvet cake to be on the sweeter side. I will probably try a different recipe next time. I used this cream cheese recipe and loved it! However, I modified the recipe a bit. Instead of adding 2 cups of powdered sugar I added 3 cups (per one of the reviewers suggestions) and the end result was delightful.
