Anyone have any suggestions for a frosting to put on a red velvet cake? I always use a cream cheese frosting but the person I'm making this for doesn't like the cream cheese.
I think 7-minute frosting is the "real" red velvet frosting...I just saw a recipe yesterday on Martha Stewart's site and I would additionally look on allrecipes dot com.
I had someone ask for one frosted in white chocolate BC/fondant...
What I consider to be the 'real' icing for red velvet cake is a cooked white icing. The recipe is listed in the recipe section several times. You basically cook milk and plain flour together in a saucepan until thick, let cool, then in a mixing bowl blend butter, shortening, white sugar and vanilla, then add in the cooled cooked mixture.
This recipe also makes a great 'filling' for chocolate cakes too!
the icing recipe on here in the recipe section called "Mary Kay Icing" is what my grandmother always used. It's delicious!
Plain white BC or plain 'ole chocolate.
Thanks gals! A lot of good selections!
the last time i did a red velvet i used the no cook fudge frosting recipe fromt he bhg cookbook and everyone looooved it!!!! i have since used it on chocolate cake several times. it keeps the cake really super moist and i have had rave reviews over it. i also just recently made red velvet cake truffles with bailey's irish cream and whipping cream and they were also absolutely amazing
