I happened to be happy when I found this recipe in Jesse Oleson Moore’s because so many bakers overlook prepared icing and aim for cream-cheese frosting. Today, you could love red velvet cake with cream-cheese frosting – and even believe that it is the initial pairing – but offer this one an attempt, which some proponents say is the icing that's designed to crown your purple velvet cake.

This will be a traditional purple velvet cake, large and beautiful. I’ve made some changes: the meal demands butter rather than oil or shortening, that we believe provides a richer ﬂavor, and the meals coloring? Yes, it is there, and there’s a great deal. It’s up to you simply how much to use—depends on whether you want a cake that whispers or one which shouts.
