It is a finger licking cake & is te easiest process of making red velvet cake wen u r short of time & ur kids have invited their friend over. And it will vanish in no time.

Ingredients vegetarian 8 servings

    For the cake:
    • 1 pack white cake mix( use the method in the box).
    • Add to the mix, 2 tsp coco powder.
    • 2 tbsp red food colour

    • 2 cup cream cheese
    • 1 cup sugar or adjust to ur liking
    • 1 tbsp vanilla.
    • 3/4 c whipping cream
    • Few drops of food colouring


    1. You can do this in layers or a whole cake, depending on that grease your pans with a little oil.
    2. Pre heat over to 350 deg. 
    3. In a bowl combine the cake ingredients & beat on high speed for 3 min.
    4. pour the mix in the pan or pans.
    5. Bake as prescribed in the pack.
    6. Remove from heat & cool completely.
    7.  In another bowl combine the icing items(except the food colour) & beat till nice & creamy.
    8.  Bring your cake out of the pans & spread the icing evenly over it (leaving a little icing on hand), either by layering (it if you have made 2 cakes) or above one cake.
    9. Combine the food colour in the little icing that you had left out & mix to a nice red colour icing.
    10. Drizzle it over the white iced cake & serve.
