A doctored Red Velvet cake mix turns into a beautiful three layer Red Velvet Rose Cake in just a few steps!
This isn’t my birthday cake but it seems like the most appropriate recipe to post today. Tomorrow is my birthday and while I haven’t made a cake for myself to share I do have this simple red velvet rose cake to post. I made this rose cake for my god-daughter Kendra’s birthday back at the beginning of June so today we’re just going to “share” it. haha
I turn 31 years old tomorrow. While I technically entered into my thirties last year, I consider that a test run. That was a test run year to see how the thirties were going to treat me. Tomorrow I really press forward into the land of 30-something year-olds.
Thankfully though, if this past year was any indication of how my thirties will go, I’m in for a real treat. Of course like most years, there have been some ups and downs. However, the ups far outweigh the downs.
Since last June, we’ve moved into our new apartment downtown, I’ve gone to Chicago, I took a trip to Sandestin, and made multiple trips to Wilmington.Plus, brother finally got engaged!!! haha
Even though tomorrow is my birthday, I’ve got nothing planned. Well, I’m taking the day off from the office, but other than that I don’t have any big plans.
I suppose Thomas and I will go out to dinner, that’s normally the extend of my wild and crazy birthday’s nowadays. Oh and I’ll probably ditch the low carb diet tomorrow. haha I’m equally dreading that and excited about that. <— I’m a real party animal I tell ya.
So, let’s chat about the cake for a second. It’s a simple cake from a doctored cake mix but I think it turned out pretty nice. 🙂 It’s very similar to the white chocolate birthday cake that I made for Alyssa (Kendra’s Sister) back in March.
I just went with a red velvet cake instead of whie chocolate. Oh and of course I changed out the purple flowers and pearls for red roses and red dots. Those red accents were Kendra’s request. haha.
I’ve been using this cake recipe for the past 10 years and it always turns out perfect. I’ve used this recipe with white cake mix, yellow cake mix, chocolate cake mix and red velvet, as you see here.
So it’s simple to make, easy to decorate and for an amateur cake maker (cough *me* cough) haha it turned out pretty well.
So Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to Kendra! Happy Birthday to Paisley! Happy Birthday to all of you June babies!
