Lots of people relate a Red Velvet Cake to Valentine’s Day, an engagement or wedding but it’s a wonderful celebration cake any time of the year. It makes quite an entrance with it’s red and white contrast and there are lots of decorating options for you to choose.
White chocolate is always a favourite and any red berries work well. I had freeze dried raspberries which I felt would contrast well with the sweetness of the cream cheese frosting and I crumbled some Flake chocolate over this to complete the decoration.
As I made this recipe in two 8″ sandwich tins, I used the cream cheese frosting both for filling and covering. It’s a lovely light recipe and straightforward to put together.
