Red Velvet Cake, a cake with red color or red-brown color. It is traditionally prepared as a layered cake with cream cheese topping. Beetroot or red food color is added to get the dark red color in the cake. A moist Red Velvet cake is a perfect dessert for a festive mood. As valentine's Day is approaching, I thought this recipe would be useful. This is an eggless version. But still we get the same moist and spongy cake and with the cream cheese frosting and sugar sprinklers, this would be really an awesome dessert.
