Red velvet cake makes a perfect Christmas dessert because this cake seems to have a lot more fans than many other Christmas cakes.
Maybe it’s because red velvet cake has a little bit of chocolate and can satisfy both chocolate lovers and folks who aren’t such big chocolate fans.
This recipe comes from cake baker, Mandy Merriman, who says this is one of her most-requested cakes year-round. It has a delicious almond cream cheese frosting and can be dressed up for the holidays with sugared or plain cranberries.
Cranberries are easy to sugar. Using fresh cranberries, wet them and then roll them in granulated sugar. It’s that simple!
