I've made a couple of red velvet recipes recently, but I wasn't getting the texture and flavour I wanted. But then I came across this one by Brown Eyed Baker and I was so happy with it that I had to make a blog post! Of course I paired it with cream cheese frosting - didn't even have to think twice about that one.
In the past I've made a few cream cheese frostings, but never one with a thick consistency for piping. As I said, I didn't follow a recipe, but I used a touch more cream cheese than butter, just to ensure the frosting tasted how it sounded. Of course I also added icing sugar, vanilla and a touch of cream. The Wilton 1M gave me these beautiful swirls and although many of them were lop-sided, I can say that my piping abilities are much better than they were a year ago!
