A fun cake for birthdays or a cake sale that looks beautiful. This is a lovely change from the norm.
fab recipe, have made it a few times now, small cakes and large cakes. I dont add the salt and halve the cocoa and food colouring quantities and its a nice red colour. The buttercream is fabulous! Am going to make this for xmas instead of a fruit cake! PS i have coeliac so use gluten free flour. - 17 Nov 2011
An amazingly easy and delicious cake! Came out a beautiful red colour and it was a huge hit with family and friends. In fact it was so good I it for Christmas day... - 26 Dec 2012
I made this cake for my girlfriend's birthday and she and her family all loved it (and me!). It was deliciously rich and moist. I made vanilla buttercream frosting instead of the cream cheese frosting and it worked well. The only downside was that the red colour didn't show up in the final baked cake, but it tasted so nice it didn't really matter! - 15 Aug 2011
