Red Velvet Cake: V-Day special

Red is the color of love that’s why Valentine’s Day means red color everywhere.  For V-Day special I made some spinach cheese tart so I thought to make something red which will make our day perfect. And without a perfect dessert any celebration becomes dull. So finally I made some RED VELVET CAKE to celebrate the special V-Day.

The specialty of the cake is the RED COLOR and this cake is layered with some cream cheese filling. As I told before baking is not my cup of tea so this time also I was little nervous but after seeing the cake my husband's expression was best V-Day gift for me.

1.All purpose flour: 2 cup.
2.Sugar: 2 cup.
3.Eggs: 3.
4.Butter: 1 slice (softened)
5.Baking powder: 1 tea spoon.
6.Salt: ½ tea spoon.
7.Two table spoon: Brown sugar.
8.One table spoon vanilla essence.
9.Three table spoon coco powde
10.Butter Milk: 1 cup.
11.Red food color: 2 table spoon
12.Some extra butter and flour for greasing.
For frosting:
1.One cup Unsalted butter.
2.Two cup powdered  sugar
3.Half cup cream cheese.
4.One table spoon vanilla essence.

For Cake:

Pre heat the oven in 175C.

In a big bowl add the sugar and butter mix till it light and fluffy about 5 mints.

Now add eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition.

Then add the vanilla essence and mix well. Finally add the red food color and mix well.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and backing powder, coco powder, brown sugar nicely.

Now slowly add the flour mixture into the creamed mixture alternately with milk. Beat just until combined.

Now flour and grease two same size cake pans and bake two same size cakes for 30 to 35 mints or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool it for 10 mints, then take out the cakes from the pan and place them in a cool rack.

Now make the frosting:

 In a bowl add the butter, powder sugar, cream cheese and vanilla essence and mix well.

Now in a plate first place one cake then spread the cream cheese on top of that like a layer now place another cake and same way spread the cream cheese all the sides of the cake smooth the surface.

I just decorated the cake with some crushed candy which makes the cake more tasty but you can use any other things to decorate your cake.
