A dear friend of mine asked me to do her wedding cake. The couples all time favourite is Red Velvet so we had an evening of tasting quite few different recipes. all using slightly different methods and resulting in varying texture. In the end I am pleased to say that the one that won the vote was my own recipe. After making quite a lot of red velvets i decided that i would adapt my favourite and very popular chocolate cake. The resulting cake was moist, with a hint of chocolate from the cocoa powder and a deep red colour. Due to the finish of the cake, i had to decorate it at the venue which i was quite nervous about but it all turned out well in the end and it went down so well that i wasn’t quick enough to get a slice!
