Red Velvet Cake.
Okay, okay. I'll figure out how to make you one this year. Yeah, that's right. I'm a southerner who's never made a red velvet cake. Bite me. So, I scoured Pinterest looking for the best one. Well, the second best. The best one involved lard, so I kept chugging along. Until I found this one from Divas Can Cook. This one involved coffee. Brian likes coffee. Oh, why not?
I halved the recipe, mostly because we already had a cake in the house. I also turned it into red velvet cupcakes. See?
Once they cooled, I used this recipe for icing:
I got this image/recipe off Pinterest, too. (I don't know who it belongs to, it's just an image, I'm sorry, don't sue me, please!) Though, I didn't follow it completely. I put everything into a mixing bowl, except for the powdered sugar. I started mixing and added the powdered sugar in gradually. Honestly? I maybe used half a box. I didn't want it to be too sweet. It turned out perfectly! So, I slathered it on the cupcakes.
Either way, they turned out delicious, and my husband loved them, which is what really matters. I'd recommend either recipe.
