1/4 Photos of Really Red Red Velvet Cake
This makes a great birthday cake! I first heard of a red velvet cake when I saw the movie "Steel Magnolias" and went on a hunt to find a great recipe for this famous cake. This recipe is my version of one I found originally in "Taste of Home Great Desserts." My version differs from tradition slightly in that I like to tint the frosting red as well, making it really, really red. For the brightest red color for your frosting, use paste food coloring (such as those sold in small jars by Wilton), but you will also need a bottle of liquid food coloring to dye the cake red as well. I also have made the frosting pink for little girls' birthday cakes and baby showers. Prep time does not include cooling time and allows for a little extra time for icing the cake.
