RED VELVET DRAGONSCALE CAKE

loading...
It’s that time of year again… the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and you’re looking forward to the premiere of one of the darkest shows on tv. A show that consistently crushes your soul, your dreams, your will to live, and yet you keep coming back for more. Those familiar with the Game of Thrones series will know exactly what I’m talking about. I’m still not over the whole Oberyn thing — I almost swore off the series at that point. Crushed.

So, in celebration of the season 6 premiere, I’ve collaborated with some fabulous bloggers to bring you some Game of Thrones themed recipes and crafts. Be sure to check out their links at the bottom of this post for some serious showstoppers!!

I didn’t get my act together to make something until this past Tuesday. I wanted to participate, but I was uninspired and  couldn’t think of a thing to make. Then I came across this stunner, which was my inspiration for today’s Dragonscale Cake.

Not gonna lie, I got excited pretty quickly. In true Olivia fashion, I left myself almost no time to get my act together to research, plan, and make this. The poor rhubarb recipe I was intending to make got cast aside, as did the rhubarb itself. Hopefully it survives a few more days in the back of my fridge.


INGREDIENTS

  • Red Velvet Cake:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 tsp super red color gel
  • 1/2 tsp white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk room temperature
  • Buttercream:
  • 6 cups powdered sugar sifted
  • 2 cups unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or flavoring of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • black color gel
  • red color gel
  • moss green color gel
  • gold pearl dust
  • US Customary - Metric

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Red Velvet Cake:
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour three 6" cake rounds, line with parchment.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Set aside.
  4. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter until smooth. Add sugar and beat on med-high until pale and fluffy (2-3mins).
  5. Reduce speed and add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition. Add vanilla, red color gel, and vinegar.
  6. Alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk, starting and ending with flour (3 additions of flour and 2 of milk). Fully incorporating after each addition. Do not overmix.
  7. Spread batter evenly into prepared pans. Smooth the top with a spatula.
  8. Bake for approx. 30mins or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.
  9. Place cakes on wire rack to cool for 10mins then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Buttercream:
  11. Prepare a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Whisk butter until creamy. Reduce speed to low and add in icing sugar 1 cup at a time until well blended. Increase speed to med and beat for 3 minutes.
  12. Add vanilla and 1 Tbsp cream and continue to beat on medium for 1 minute.
  13. - Reserve 1.5 cups of the white frosting to frost the inside layers and crumb coat the cake.
  14. - Reserve 1/4 cup of the white frosting to color red.
  15. - Reserve 1/4 cup of the white frosting to color green.
  16. For the remaining frosting, add enough color get to get it to the desired shade(s) of dark grey. I ended up using the entire bottle to get 3 different shades. Once it got to a dark enough grey shade, I removed 1/4 of the buttercream, then I added more black and did the same one more time. With the remaining buttercream I added the rest of the color gel for the darkest shade.*
  17. See tutorial pictures above for decorating technique.

NOTES
*Note: all of the colors will darken over time. So much so that you can't really tell that I have 3 different shades of grey. You may want to save some time and just do one dark shade.
Inspired by this House Targaryen Cake.
