Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Sometimes, red velvet cakes are known more for their brilliant coloring than they are for their flavor because it is easier to simply make the cake look fancy than put together a great recipe.

Red Velvet Cake Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Filling

Red Velvet Cake Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Filling

Red velvet cake is one of my favorite types of cake. It is a buttermilk cake with a hint of cocoa – just enough for flavor, not enough to make it “chocolate cake” – that has a gorgeous red hue.
