Yes, we all know red velvet cake is fabulous. But, did you know that it doesnt have to be red? Thats right, you can dye this cake any colour you wish. Imagine all the fun you could have. Red velvet is typically paired with cream cheese frosting, but I think it is still delicious with Italian meringue buttercream. So the next time you want a change from chocolate cake, or vanilla cake, try this recipe. Its tasty no matter what colour you choose!
*Note: This recipe makes 4lbs of batter.*
**Tips for Baking: I bake all my cakes at 350. Baking times are a suggested guideline. It is important to get to know your oven, and always test cakes in the centre with a toothpick. When it comes out clean, your cake is ready. It is also important to rotate your cakes, gently, while baking. Rotate smaller cakes once, and larger cakes that have longer baking times, four times. This helps the cake to bake evenly.**
