Red Velvet Cake is fluffy, soft and buttery, covered in the most amazing cream cheese frosting. It has the perfect tender texture and a great festive look. Ideal for Valentine's Day, birthdays, or any other occasions.
Remove the cakes from the oven and run a knife around the edges to loosen them from the pans. Let it cool in the pans for about 20-30 minutes. Invert the cakes onto a plate and then re-invert them onto a cooling rack. Round side up. Cool completely before frosting.
To frost it, prepare the Cream Cheese Frosting according to recipe directions.
Place the first layer onto the cake stand. Add about 1 cup (or more if needed) of frosting onto the cake layer and using an offset spatula, spread the frosting evenly, to create a 1/2-inch layer.
