This classic Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is the cake to make for all your celebratory or weekend baking needs! Four soft, sweet, extra chocolate-y, bright red cake layers. Each generously frosted with the most delicious no-fail cream cheese frosting. Decorate simply like I did, take a more traditional route, or go all out! No matter what you do, this cake will always stand out and be sure to impress.

Talk about classic! This cake has been in my family for generations. It may not be a southern cake per-say, but it might as well have been. This was one of the most popular cakes to order during my mom's catering business. I remember almost every wedding/celebration, they ordered THIS red velvet cake!
