Welcome new San Diego 6 News Followers! We hope you enjoyed our special Halloween Movie Night Special! Here is the cake that was featured! Enjoy!
It is finally October therefore I can finally post Halloween themed desserts without feeling too bad, right!? I could have started Halloween in August (when I start my Christmas music) but I thought I would spare you all!
This Red Velvet Halloween Cake was not only gorgeous, but it was delicious too. We are not big red velvet fans over here, but it was gobbled up pretty quickly! It is perfect for Halloween too! The blood red center combined with the decadent black frosting make for a pretty spooky cake!
I like my cakes high, so I opted to make smaller rounds rather than doubling the batch. It still served quite a few people because I was able to make smaller slices do to the height.
I have tried many different brands of food coloring, but always end up using McCormick food colors when I want a vibrant color. I love using their black during Halloween and Valentine’s Day. Mixed with a chocolate frosting, you can really get a rich dark color. No, this post is not sponsored, I am just telling you what I use in my kitchen and why 😉 The recipe provided below was made for making the rosettes. So do be alarmed by the amount, you need lots of frosting! If you don’t plan on making the rosettes, I would suggest cutting the recipe in half. For a great tutorial on how to make the rosettes, go here.
If you have a party coming up, make this cake! It will not disappoint! Happy haunting!
