One of Miss Bee’s favorite desserts is Red Velvet Cake. Red Velvet cake is made with cocoa and lots of red food coloring with a cream cheese icing. This recipe comes from a series of cookbooks by the editors of Southern Living magazine — The Southern Cake Book.
I love the cover design. They also make a Cookies and Pies version. I have all three books in my baking library. The recipes are easy and the photography is beautiful.
The cream cheese icing is one of the best recipes I have found. So, creamy and rich.
Take a fork full of cake and crumble it over the slices to make it look really festive.
One Christmas I made batches of the cake in disposable 8×8 foil pans with the plastic lids, tied them up with white satin ribbon, added a peppermint Christmas ornament and sprig of rosemary and gave them as gifts. Everyone enjoys receiving baked goods made with love by you!
