This was originally made as cupcakes for a Cupcake Wars contest in the Hudson Valley but people were asking to make this into a cake so it evolved. Enjoy!

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2
Cream sugar and butter, beat until light and fluffy
3
Add eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition.
4
Add food coloring, sour cream, buttermilk and vanilla and mix well.
5
Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cocoa. Add flour mixture alittle at a time. DO NOT over mix, it will ruin the texture of the cake.
6
Pour batter into 3 (8-inch) round greased and floured pans. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out alittle crumbly. Remove from heat and cool completely before frosting.

NOTE: All ovens are different these time is approximate. Always a good idea to calibrate your ovens to make sure it is truly the temperature you want it to be.

For Filling:
8
Cream together the cream cheese and butter.
9
Add the confectioners sugar and vanilla extract until full incorporated.
10
Add White Godiva Liquer and heavy cream to the cream cheese mixture and whip until fluffy
11
For Frosting:
12
Cream butter (yes 4 sticks of butter) and vanilla together. Add the confectioners sugar until fully incorporated.

Note: Buttercream is 2 sticks of butter to 3 cups of confectioners sugar. This is a double batch so that you are able to decorate your cake when you are done icing it.
13
Alternate adding White Godiva Liquer and heavy cream until desired icing consistency.

It's still my favorite cake. The "filling" I've made to actually ice other cupcakes. I could eat it out of the bowl. So glad it worked out for you!

Made this recipe as cupcakes for a Christmas Eve sweets table to rave reviews even though I skipped the "filling" part. I tinted the extra icing green and piped it onto brownie bites (baked in miniature pans) for a pretty contrast to the red velvet cupcakes with white frosting. Even the health-conscious 20-somethings had more than one helping, and I got requests to make it again for a family reunion next month.
