A Red Velvet Cake is one of those cakes that everyone must try. It is full of decadence that it takes you to a new level of comfort food.  The cocoa makes this cake so gorgeous you have to try it.  This recipe makes a one tier cake but by increasing the volumes, you can increase the number of tier to form a tower. Which ever way you choose, this is superb as a cake, as a dessert or just a snack. I often have one of these ready for when girl friends pop round to gossip as my husband puts it. It is just another excuse for me to make one.
