|Make a wish!|
I made this wonderful Red Velvet Cake for my sister-in-law, Stephanie’s birthday. The recipe comes from Southern Cakes by Nancie McDermott – another Charleston find. You can find the recipe here. Red Velvet Cake is a Southern classic immortalized by the Armadillo Groom’s Cake scene in Steel Magnolias.
What sets this cake apart is the Coconut-Pecan frosting – it’s amazing. And, I am thrilled that I finally mastered fluffy cooked buttercream! This has been an ongoing challenge for me with a few of the Baked Sunday Mornings recipes. The only change I made was to top the cake with shaved white chocolate.
