I happen to LOVE red velvet cake ever since I made this recipe from Better Homes & Gardens magazine. I followed their cake recipe, but I used my own recipe for buttercream frosting. So I'm not sure how their frosting is, but I thought mine was actually a bit too sweet. (Or maybe I loaded it on too thick!) Maybe next time I'll use their frosting recipe.

The recipe makes a 3-layer cake. I frosted the whole thing with white buttercream, then used the larger star tip (#21) to pipe the bottom border, the red area on the top and the white area on the top. I drew the black lines and the name on with a #7 round tip.

The birthday boy took one bite of the cake and exclaimed "Best cake ever!" That's some high praise coming from a 10-year-old boy!
