Red Velvet Wedding Cake

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!
