A wonderful recipe for the classic American red velvet cake with a white chocolate cream cheese icing.
Brilliant recipe! People who are having problem with colour that is due to using liquid food colouring!!! NO NO NO!! Use gel colouring (available is asda ) when mixing the cocoa powder mix for about 3 minutes with a spoon it wont really mix much but when you add it to your mix and put your mixer on..voa-la! ITS RED! if you feel like adding more gel food colouring to it go for it do not be scared. WARNING >> it is a concentrate so only add like 1/2 teaspoon at a time. I made lots of cupcakes out of this recipe and people have actually placed orders for them today. happy baking! - 10 Dec 2012
Used different ingredients. I had to add icing sugar to the buttercream, as it wasn't sweet enough otherwise. Im not sure if it was mistakenly omitted as other similar recipes do call for icing sugar. it also helps stiffen the buttercream up for easier frosting of the cake. otherwise a great recipe. - 01 Oct 2010
I tried this recipe. It tasted really good.. But i had to do A few adjustments. Well if your using a single cake tin you need to bake the cake for about an hour. When you make the frosting, after you beat the cream cheese add the melted chocolate (make sure its cool down) and mix them. Then add butter little by little while mixing. You don't have to add the given amount of butter as it will make the mixture runny.. By doing this i had a perfect cake and perfect frosting.. - 05 Jan 2013
