Red Velvet Layer Cake

For two days, I've had the urge to make a layer cake. I love to cook but I'm not much of a baker, probably because I just don't have a sweet tooth and I am usually indifferent about dessert. My husband is the opposite so, with the desire to bake and a ready and willing eater, I went to it.

The red dye looked like abstract art or blood in the buttermilk.

I actually have a cake stand! It is also a punch bowl too so it has been used for sangria before but this was its first stint with a cake. The cake is frosted with cream cheese frosting and it was really hard to get it on the sides and make a nice pattern.

And the taste test... very good! Austin is leaving his plate out of the dishwasher so he can have a little more tonight while he does his fantasy football draft picks.
