The Most Delicious Red Velvet Cake

Soft, moist, and delicious, this red velvet cake is TO DIE FOR! For Valentine’s Day, birthday parties, holidays, and get togethers, this gorgeous red beauty is the perfect choice of cake for any occasion!  Filled with a sweet chocolate ganache and cream cheese frosting, you really can’t get any better than this. Red velvet is a huge hit down in the south, with it being one of the most favorite cakes to date. I was never a huge fan of it myself, until I made it at home – store bought red velvet cakes can’t compare!

* The original photo of this cake that goes along with the recipe used milk chocolate ganache. This one in the photo above uses white chocolate ganache. So whichever you prefer you can use for your recipe.
