For the month of February I am challenging you to create a red velvet layer cake! Let’s get this month’s baking challenge on!
Last month, I decided to make things a bit easier and pick a dessert that is no fuss and embraces citrus. I mean we are in the dead of winter and citrus reigns supreme for me when it comes to dessert.
So my easy lemon bars it was! Just check out everyone’s creations below…
This month I wanted to challenge everyone to make a layer cake! Red velvet layer cake of course since it’s February.
I have a couple options for you on icing. And if you don’t like using food coloring, the recipe post has some alternatives for you as well.
Here is how to participate in the challenge:
- Make this red velvet layer cake. You can top it with my ermine icing (a traditional buttercream for a red velvet layer cake. There is step by step photos and video to help you make it!) You can also top it with a cream cheese icing from my red velvet cupcake recipe – I would just double the amount! Whichever you prefer. If you are new to baking layer cakes, then be sure to check out my Ultimate Resource Guide To Baking Layer Cakes
- Take a photo and share it by February 28, 11:59 EST. You have two options on how to share your photo:
- Share on Instagram. Just be sure to tag me – @bostongirlbakes and use the hashtag #bostongirbakes
- Facebook Community – I have started a brand new private Facebook group just for us! If you’re not already inside, click here to request access. Please note that I approve everyone manually to ensure the community remains a fun and friendly place, so it may take several days for your request to be approved.You can submit to one or the other, or to BOTH for two entries. Woo hoo double entries 🙂
This month I will be giving you a chance to win your own apron from Flirty Aprons of your choice ($30 or less value) + a $25 digital Amazon Gift card. I love my Flirty aprons – they are just so cute. They have aprons for women, men, and kids! Plus kitchen tools, farmhouse signs, even organic kitchen cleaning products!
Every person who submits a photo following those directions will be entered into the random giveaway! No purchase necessary.
And don’t worry about taking that perfect photo. The winner will be selected randomly. Your photos may be put on display to share with my entire audience! I will message the winner via the platform they posted the photo on (Facebook or Instagram). Winner must reply with their address to receive the gift card. If there’s no response within 48 hours a new winner will be chosen. I will purchase the gift card through the Amazon website.
So what do you think?! Are you up for this month’s baking challenge?!
