So, I remembered I never shared the incredible birthday cake I made for my Aunt’s surprise 70th party way back in December.
I’m still kind of in awe myself! like, did I make that?!
Unless you live under a rock, you may have see the Rose Cake all over the web. In the past two years, this cake has been replicated more times than I can count. You want to know why? Because it’s SO EASY to make! not kidding! It looks intricate, beautiful and amazing…….but difficult it is not. Don’t believe me? Check out this rose cake video tutorial…… then go make one yourself and wow your friends and family like I did!
If the outside of this rose cake isn’t pretty enough………I need to tell you about the inside. Red Velvet & Cinnamon Layer Cake topped with traditional Cream Cheese Frosting. and yes……it’s was every bit as ridiculously decadent as it sounds!
My aunt loves Red Velvet cake, and if you’ve read my blog much, you know I have no qualms about using Duncan Hines Cake mixes for most of my recipes. But this time, I wanted to try it from scratch.
Homemade Classic Red Velvet Cake
I wish I had a picture of the cake cut for you………I didn’t go to the party, but they saved me a piece and it was every bit as delicious as I had imagined! Apparently, it got just as many oohs and ahhhs, cut………even the waiter was drooling -they gave him a piece to take home 😉
When I think of Red Velvet Cake I think of deep dark red cake with a hint chocolate, the tang of buttermilk, the sweet tartness of cream cheese frosting……but what if we add a touch of cinnamon buttercream between the layers? A little non-traditional, but oh so delicious!
I did a little searching and found great reviews on a Red Velvet Cake recipe at Baking911.com. The only modification I made was; I did not have buttermilk, so I used powdered buttermilk. (see full recipe below). This recipe did not fail….it was wonderful, moist and full of flavor.
Since this cake was for a surprise birthday party, my friend, Amy Locurto made some adorable birthday printables that matched the party invitations, hot pink and black.
