Red Velvet Cake is the ‘marmite/vegemite’ of desserts – you either love it or you hate it.
It is a visually stunning dessert with layers of red cake and white frosting, which gives it an interesting combination of textures and flavours. The cake itself consists of a red-coloured dense sponge and layers of tangy cream cheese frosting. The secret ingredients are buttermilk and vinegar which helps to give it a uniquely moist but crumbly texture.
