Vegan Red Velvet Cake

Joan Hunt


This is my Husbands Birthday cake.

He wanted a cake that was healthy so I decided to do a whole wheat red velvet cake and use beets to color it red instead of a lot of red food coloring.

I did a three tier present cake using a silicone pan from kitchen aid. made a good Birthday cake.
