Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting for Jess

It was Jessie's birthday on Wednesday, so I made her Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting to celebrate.

The recipe I used for the cake was from pp 22-23 of  Sugar Sugar by Kimberley Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero.  You can find the recipe online here.   The cream cheese frosting was the same one that I used here, except that I did add the butter and vanilla this time, making for a smoother, creamier frosting - proof that all ingredients have a purpose!

Here is Jessie holding up the first slice of cake, demonstrating the colour and crumb of the cake: 

And the verdict?  Voted delicious by everyone, and definitely a keeper red velvet recipe.

Happy birthday Jess!
