Red Velvet Cake
Ingredients 
2 1/2 cups Flour
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Bicarb Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cocoa
1 1/2 cups Vegetable Oil
1 cup Buttermilk
2 Large Eggs
2 tablespoons Red Food Colouring or Beetroot Extract
1 teaspoon white Vinegar 
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence or extract
  Mascarpone or Cream Cheese Frosting:
250 to 300ml cream cheese or macarpone
2 sticks Butter, softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence or extract
4 cups Sifted Icing Sugar
Red Sugar for  Decoration topping
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your cake pan with Spray and Cook or rub a little butter in it to ensure the cake won’t stick to it.In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa.
 In a different bowl gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld electric mixer. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.
Pour half the batter in your baking tray and repeat this step for the remaining half of the batter. Bake in oven for about 25 to 30 minutes. Test the cake by sticking a clean knife in the middle, if it comes out clean, your cake is done. If it’s not clean then leave the cake in the oven for more time. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.

 For the Mascarpone or Cream Cheese Frosting
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth. Add the sugar and on low speed, beat until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy.
Red Sugar decoration
Pour desired amount of sugar in a small bowl, add red colouring into it and mix until all combined. You might need to add more sugar because you don’t want this mixture to be runny or drippy. Sprinkle over the cake. 
Take pictures and send them to me, I wanna see how awesome they turn out. You can also use this recipe for cupcakes. Reduce the baking time by five minutes for cupcakes.
