Green Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

















I made this delicious easy cake in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day.  Let’s just say that it was a huge success with the kids and their friends.  They thought it was so cool to see a cake that was green.

You would make it the same exact way you would a Red Velvet Cake just substitute the red coloring for the green one.  That easy!

So if your feeling a little green just bake this baby and you’ll feel much better… especially when its completely covered in cream cheese frosting! YUMMMMMMM :-)

Enjoy!



Preheat oven to 350°F.

Grease and flour two 8 inch cake pans.


Lightly whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Then add remaining liquid ingredients: Oil, Buttermilk, Vinegar, Vanilla, and Green Food Coloring, stir together with whisk until blended. Set aside.


Place all the dry ingredients: Flour, Sugar, Cocoa, Salt, and Baking Soda in your mixing bowl and stir together really good with another wire whisk.


Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix on medium-high for about a minute or until completely combined.

Pour into cake pans and then drop the pans on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

After about ten minutes, remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack. I also cover in plastic wrap while the cakes cool.

While the cake are cooling, make the frosting.


For Cream Cheese Frosting:

Sift sugar and set aside.

Beat cream cheese and butter on high until creamy. Add vanilla.

Then, add the sugar in batches. Scrape down the sides in between each addition.

Now its time to frost your yummy cake… just try not eat all the frosting before. :-P
