SMS - Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake was chosen by Rosy of Rosy Lips and Lavender for this week's SMS. I am late posting today because I thought I would mess with decorating the cake as a Valentines gesture ALONG WITH making the rest of our Superbowl food. By the way, I have a 7 layer dip that is killer and will add to this post later today (homemade Guacamole, spicy refried beans,etc). Rosy - Great Choice! I used a different cream cheese icing for decorating purposes BUT my kitchen was so darn hot, my icing kept getting WAY too soft. Even refrigerating the icing meant disaster so all the cake decorations are droopy. Bummer because the cake could have been so much more.
Thank you Rosy for a great choice and please visit everyone's Sweet Melissa Sunday blogs to see how talented these wonderful bakers really are!

Happy SUPERBOWL SUNDAY everyone!

Shandy, that cake is darling! You would never know you were having trouble with the icing. Looks like the cake turned out nice and red too! :)

Wow, you've got serious decorating talent Shandy! I never would have guessed you had any trouble. I avoided a cake because I stink at frosting layer cakes and cupcakes are always easier for me :)

That is one fantastic cake! I never would have thought it was droopy if you hadn't mentioned it.

Shandy said...

Dining sets, The Sweet Melissa Cake was easy enough to do so decorating felt like a cinch, thank you.

Your looks so pretty, Shandy. Great job!! Is that a heart shaped Bundt pan?? That looks awesome. Considering your issues with the frosting melting, I think your decoration still looks great.

Looking forward to your "killer dip" posting :) No pressure... :o)
