Red Velvet Ruffle Cake with red beets

The scrumptious Red Velvet cake is the  hottest cake of the moment. Some even consider it sexy with it's distinctive and dramatic red colour . This famous Red Velvet cake was featured as the signature cake of the New York City's Waldorf- Astoria.

 Red Velvet cake is a traditional cake from American South. It is actually a red beet cake. But nowadays they use red colouring instead of the red beets. This cake is usually topped with cream cheese frosting. But honestly I prefer the red beet and cocoa cake. It is deliciously moist and it taste even better than chocolate cake! Unbelievable!! The only downside was the natural colours turn brown not even a slightest red colour. But still it taste simply divine.

This is how I interpret my Red Velvet cake . With layers of Red Velvet cake and Red Beet cake , frost with Swiss meringue butter cream.

Jane's corner

I have been a selfish being all my life, in practice, though not in principal. As a child I was taught what was right, but I was not taught to correct my temper. I was given good principals, but left to follow them in pride and conceit. Unfortunately an only son (for many years an only child) I was spoiled by my parents who, who though good themselves, (my father particularly, all that was benevolent and amiable,) allowed, encouraged, almost taught me to be selfish and overbearing, to care for none beyond my own family circle, to think meanly of all the rest of the world, to wish at least to think meanly of their sense and worth compared with my own. Such I was, from eight to eight and twenty; and such I might still have been but for you, dearest, loveliest Elizabeth! What do I not own you? You taught me a lesson, hard indeed at first, but most advantageous. By you, I was properly humbled. I came to you without a doubt of my reception. You showed me how insufficient were all my pretensions to please a woman worthy of being pleased."

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen (1813)
