Red Velvet Cake

It seems that if you ask a NZ-er what their favourite cake is, 7/10 would say Carrot Cake.

While if you ask Americans, they’re more likely to say Red Velvet cake.

It may be due to the fact that they both have cream cheese buttercream as filling and topping, or that they’re both soft, springy and moist at the same time, which makes them so popular with people. It is interesting to see that red velvet is almost unheard of in New Zealand, but our friends requested a red velvet for their house warming, so I made one.

I’ve made red velvet a few times, most times requested by people who’s never had it before but have heard so much about it that they want to give it a try, although I didn’t ask our friends if they’ve ever had it before.

It was probably many people’s first time trying a red velvet, and it got raving reviews, so perhaps with time, red velvet cake will pick up in NZ too!

This red velvet cake was 10″, topped with fresh blueberries and glacie cherries.
