June is birthday month in our house, starting with Kayla, and ending with me. The beginning of June we celebrated Kayla turning 18 with these Funfetti Cupcakes and now we are celebrating Zack’s birthday with The Very Best Red Velvet Cake!

Y’all, this cake is simply AMAZING! It’s moist thanks to the buttermilk and the texture is perfect thanks to the combination of all purpose flour and cake flour.  The cream cheese frosting will knock your socks off with just the right amount of sweetness. This cake will stop your guests in their tracks because you produced a red velvet cake that is not only beautiful (done so easily), but freaking delicious!

So, how do I know that this is The Very Best Red Velvet Cake? Well….because I’ve eaten a lot of red velvet cake over the years. From store bought to homemade this one was the first one that I ever was like, “WOW.” I’ve probably made about a dozen different recipes, but after finding one that I really liked, and playing around with it to find The Very Best Red Velvet Cake, I knew that it had to be for Zack’s birthday, and I knew that I had to share it with y’all!

I’m not a cake decorator by any means. I try really hard to make them pretty. I can’t make smooth frosting on the sides, and the only pretty top I’ve ever done was on the Lemon Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting, and y’all, it was by pure accident. Seriously. I was just using the tip of my small offset spatula. So if I can make pretty cake, I know that y’all can too!

For The Very Best Red Velvet Cake I used the crumbs from leveling the cakes to top the cake with. The side was made with the tip of my small offset spatula. I just placed the tip on the bottom and pulled it straight up, and pulled it slightly upward towards the center of the cake. See, simple. It’s very easy to practice this, and if you mess up, just take the frosting back off, and do it again until you get the look you want.
