One of my life long friends, loves Red Velvet Cake. It was her birthday recently so I dug out my no fail Red Velvet recipe from Hummingbird Bakery. As you can see the book is old and used! To be honest the red velvet recipe is the only one I use from the book. I did make their version of buttercream once and honestly it felt like my teeth would drop out-the icing was that sweet. Good old Red Velvet though, can't sing the praises enough.
I topped and filled it with my variation of vanilla buttercream.
