Red Velvet Cake– Yummy!

Today both my mom and I had the day off, so we decided to bake!

 Originally I had wanted to bake a strawberry pie; however, the strawberries I had bought only two days ago had already gone bad. So we looked around and had all the ingredients to make red velvet cake! I actually am not a fan of chocolate, but there is something about red velvet cake that I really like. This cake is actually pretty easy to make, my mom put together the solid ingredients, and I put together the liquid and the red coco part. Then we let it bake.

It was alot of fun, I love spending time with my mommy, I really treasure her!

Then comes the part that I rock at: making frosting. I normally mix ingredients together to taste, but I went along with the recipe for the cake, about half way through my mom realized she gave me the wrong page.( totally her fault not mine!)So I started to wing it, and it taste great! My one problem however, is that I always add to much vanilla extract. It still tastes great I’m happy with the taste.

 

Theresa’s Cream Cheese Frosting (yeah I’m sure this is someone else’s too but hey I made it too)

2 sticks unsalted butter

4 cups confectionary sugar

10 oz cream cheese

2 teaspoons vanilla extract (really you probably should only use one)

This recipe makes a large amount of frosting (we do a double stack cake)

I also add cream cheese and sugar to taste while I blend. After all ingredients are mixed I switch to fluff so it comes out nice and creamy.

It was so yummy!
