How do you make sure the cheesecake layer is the same as the red velvet cakes?
You first want to make sure you bake the cheesecake and the red velvet cakes in the same size cake pan, either 8″ or 9″. If you use 8″ the layers will be a little taller.
How do you make sure the layers stack nicely?
Easy, just like when you make a regular layer cake, you can use a serrated knife to carefully shave off the rounded top of the cakes. But don’t throw out any of the scraps! Crumble them up and use them to decorate the cake once it’s frosted.
You’ll Need :
Red Velvet Cake
2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour (sifted, then measured)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
