Red Velvet cake is a family favorite of ours. I make this cake for birthdays and at Christmas time. I frost my Red Velvet cake with a white frosting. Milk and flour are heated in a sauce pan while stirring constantly. After cooling, this mixture is whipped with butter, almond flavoring and ultra-fine sugar. It is a light and delicate frosting. For this Red Velvet cake, I didn't make the raspberry glaze, I simply served it with raspberry gelato.
It was interesting seeing the cakes that had been made with beet juice. Definitely a far healthier choice than red food coloring. The raspberry glaze was a great addition to these cakes.

Ready to bake.
This cake was fairly easy to make. Next time, I am going to try replacing the red food coloring with beet juice. Also, I will add the 1/4 cup of cocoa that Rose suggested for a more chocolate flavor.
