Note: Red Velvet Layer Cake

My friend Nick Bollard made this Red Velvet Cake for us when my family were at his house. It tasted beautiful, but we decided that more cake was required than the recipe produced (to balance out the icing). This inspired me to make the Red Velvet Cakelettes (as you can see by the picture he also did not believe in tooo much food colouring).

If you would like the make a Red Velvet Cake yourself, instead of the cakelettes, the cakelette recipe will produce double the cake seen in the picture. Just pour it into a round or square springform tin (the bottom lined with baking paper and with greased sides) instead of into muffin pans.

You can also use the butterscotch frosting for the middle layers. Nick iced the top of his with a meringue icing which was light and sweet.


  1. Hi there Chloe!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:

  2. I came across your site from the foodieblogroll and I'd love to guide Foodista readers to your site. I hope you could add this red velvet cake widget at the end of this post so we could add you in our list of food bloggers who blogged about ideas for red velvet cakes,Thanks!

  3. Hi Chloe, yum, I do like a red velvet cake (and butterscotch so will have to try this combo). Also thanks loads for adding me to your fave blogs list - I'm so pleased! x
