Red Velvet Cake
This cake has half the fat of its traditional namesake. Our Test Kitchens staff was divided on what kind of frosting is best on it. One side had memories of a Cream Cheese Frosting, while the other insisted that Cooked Buttercream Frosting makes it a true Red Velvet Cake. What follows is the buttercream version, but you can substitute the Cream Cheese Frosting (from our Carrot Cake) if you prefer.
