now, i have never ever attempted a cake like this, as i have always believed that you can only make a red velvet cake with gel food colouring which i don't have. but one day, i was browsing through joy of baking and found a recipe that used liquid food colouring - yay! off i went to buy my food colouring and start to bake. the original recipe was iced with cream cheese frosting but i like vanilla buttercream so, so sooo much more, so i swapped it, and make a yummy topping :)
i won't post the whole recipe, because you cand find it here, and the buttercream recipe here, but here are my pictures anyway :)
surprisingly, as soon as my youngest brother found out about the amount of food colouring in the cake, he rejected it and refused to eat any more - leaving the rest of it for me and the others.
ahh well, eat with a fork and a mug of steaming tea. nomnomnommm xxx
