I love velvet cakes. They are so delicious and moist. I can make them any kind of colors to make a velvet cake.

Red velvet cake is a favorite in the Test Kitchen and this green velvet is a fun twist. The cake is super moist with just a hint of cocoa flavor. Melissa's cream cheese frosting is sweet, tangy and creamy. A perfect complement to the velvet cake. The green coloring makes this cake so festive. It would be a great St. Patrick's Day dessert.

How to Make Green Velvet Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine wet ingredients in a mixer and blend.
  2. Combine all your dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Next, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet.
  4. Once blended, put the mixture in a greased cake pan or lined cupcake pan. For a pan, grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
  5. Bake at 350 F. for 35 minutes. Cupcakes will probably take 22 to 25 minutes until knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  6. Let it cool for 15 minutes and remove from pans on wire rack and cool completely.
  7. Cream together the cream cheese and butter.
  8. Add the confectioners' sugar and vanilla.
  9. Mix until spreading between layers and over top and on sides of a cake.
