A Red Velvet Cake For Valentine’s Day
After showing you that amazing, mouthwatering recipe for a Raffaello cake from Home Cooking Adventures, we had to go back there for more. And it was worth it, because what we found there was this magnificent Red Velvet Cake recipe that will work very conveniently for… You guessed it – Valentine’s Day!
This amazing cook, Ella from Home Cooking Adventures said: “This cake has a wonderful red color crumb and frosted with a white cream cheese frosting which I simply adore. I’ve seen various Red Velvet Cakes made in different ways and I’ve finally decided on the perfect recipe to share with you. I didn’t want an overwhelmingly sweet cake so I reduced the amount of sugar used in the cake batter and in the frosting as well. This cake is very well balanced and makes an impressive dessert for winter holidays.”
