16 Days left to bake for Christmas! DHoliday Red Velvet Cake!

The next best thing to wearing red velvet is having a red Velvet chocolate cake. Not many people requests this cake anymore. Simply because they don't know about it. It is a true southern specialty. Very popular, I understand, for the groom's cake. Does any one remember the Armadillo in "Steele Magnolias"? That was a red velvet cake gone bad. I don't even want to think about cutting into that monstrosity.
Red velvet cake is moist and has a very distinctive flavor, unlike any other chocolate cake. If you have never baked it before, here is your time to shine.

• 1 1/2 cups white sugar
• 2 eggs
* 6 tablespoons cocoa
• 4 tablespoons red food coloring

Bake for 30 minutes.

To Make Icing:

Cook 5 Tablespoons flour and milk over low heat untill thick, stirring constantly. LET COOL THOROUGHLY!

While cooling, cream 1 cup sugar, 1 cup butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat this well till light and fluffy. Add to flour mixture and beat until of a good spreading consistency.
Now plate first layer on a beutiful glass dish or holiday decorator place.
Ice first layer, by using your pastry tube and coupler, squeeze a line of icing around the outer edge of bottom layer. Fill in the center with icing.
Place second layer on top. Now ice entire cake using your large icing bag and large tip. Smooth icing with your angle knife and decorate.

Use spinkles, silk pointsettiers, or artificial holly leaves and berries.
