Why red velvet for today ? because i just love it so much ,i never wrote about it before but my first trial baking red velvet cupcake  had failed ,u can see, i used wrong cupcakes cup ,over-beat , and is burning..!!!so i would rather buy it at delicious cafe .:P

3. Using a stand mixer, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, beat until blended. Add the vanilla extract and cocoa powder mixture, beat until well blended.
4. Add in sifted flour and buttermilk ( the vinegar +milk )  alternately. Beginning and ending with flour. (F-M-F-M-F)

5. In a small bowl, combine vinegar and baking soda and add it to your  batter. Stir well with a spatula. Pour into a 6"( i used 9" ) baking pan and bake it for 50mins or until cooked.
6. Let cool on wire rack.
7. Once cool, slice cake into two and spread cream cheese filling.. top it with the rest of your cream cheese too... chill for a few hrs..

Cream Cheese frosting:
1. Beat cream cheese with butter until soft.
2. Turn mixer to low speed, add powdered sugar a little at a time. Whisk until well blended.
3. In other bowl whisk whipped  cream until fluffy ,then combined together, stir through with a spatula.

Jangan bimbang kalau cake merekah , sebab i punya pun merekah hahahahhah, no sebab kak ita cakap it's depends to your oven .and memang sangat remeh nak frosting sebab the cream so lembik :P so after cream cheese siap terus kena filling and decorate it. Thats why we really need to cool down first the cake for few hours or semalaman ,tapi kak ina and i gelojoh sangat nak makan hahah, hentam sekejap je, but still turn out nice.

Please don't compared our velvet cake with kak ita ,dia dah pro.:)
as for 2nd trial i'm happy and satisfied .

yummy , :P
