Velvety Goodness?

I cannot remember how long I have been meaning to bake a Red Velvet cake. It's always hard though when it's just Brandon and I. It's not worth making a whole cake and having to waste it, so when Brandon told me Neil was having a get together I decided it was time.

I used 2 different recipes. The actual cake itself, I used the recipe from joyofbaking. The frosting recipe I got from Jumbo Empanadas, just because I wanted a simpler, less ingredients involved frosting than the one on joyofbaking.

The frostage of the bottom layer. I should have put more on there. It ended up that you could not really see much of the middle layer frosting which was kinda upsetting.

The topping of the cake.

The cake the frosted and clothed with some shredded coconut.

The remenants of the red velvet cake after the boys attacked it. My opinion of the cake: The batter tasted REALLY good and although the cake itself tasted really good, I felt that it was a little too dry for my liking. I am more of a moist cake girl. I love carrot cakes, banana cakes, I guess more oil based cakes rather than butter based cakes. The frosting was fantastic though. I think I could just have eaten the frosting, though I might have gone into a sugar coma and felt the pains of it today. Good thing I didn't!
