Red Velvet Cake

December 5, 2010

It was my friend Kristina’s birthday on Friday and I wanted to make her favorite cake for the occasion. Now being italian-american Red Velvet Cake was not in my recipe box of traditional cakes so this was an adventure for me. I ended up using Martha Stewart’s recipe from her website as I figured I could trust her.

It is an unusual recipe and I admit to being skeptical when it called for mixing baking soda with vinegar  not to mention all that red food coloring!

But in the end it was so light and delicious, was great fun to make and got me into the holiday spirit of baking!

Did I mention how yummy the cream cheese icing was??

    Not only was this one of the best red velvet cakes I have ever eaten—and I have consumed many in my time—but it was also a big hit at the party. Lisa was lucky to get out of the apartment with a single slice to take home!
