Whether you're looking to celebrate a birthday, or surprising that special someone, this cake is perfect for it. We've impressed even ourselves with how beautifully moist this cake is, and we just love the tang that comes from the cream cheese frosting.

Create this classic from scratch, made easy with our baking kit which comes complete with piping bags, parchment rounds, and a star piping tip for you to go wild with the decorations. Be it swirls, rosettes, or zig-zags, this recipe makes you enough frosting for you to get creative!

There’s so much more to red velvet cake than tinting the batter red. The inclusion of buttermilk makes the cake incredibly moist. To further heighten the delish factor, we use a combination of quality butter and oil for flavour and texture.

The marriage of cocoa powder, vanilla, and fluffy cream cheese frosting gives this masterpiece a perfect balance of sweet and tangy. Top it off with moist, velvety cake crumbs and you have yourself a beautiful classic cake that never fails.
