At Miss Jones Baking Co., we believe red velvet cake should be eaten year round, but especially during the holidays. The festive bright red color of the cake against the bright white cream cheese glaze makes this dessert even more delicious at Christmastime. We created a Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Layer Cake recipe with our Organic Vanilla Cake Mix and pureed beets, but since the holidays are always a busy time, we decided to make a simpler version with Color Kitchen Natural Red Food Coloring. This Red Velvet Cake is rich, smooth, delicious, and so incredibly easy.
This recipe makes a deep red cake with only natural colors. Color Kitchen’s Natural Red Food Coloring is made from vegan, non-GMO, and all natural ingredients and works beautifully with Miss Jones Baking Mixes and Frostings. This Red Velvet Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze will take less than an hour to make, but is a dessert worthy of the fanciest holiday parties.
