and here is the 'recipe' for the layered red velvet cake that i posted here. a few of you asked for it... thanks for waiting patiently!

it's pretty much a made up recipe from a recipe that i used once, but even then didnt follow them as i should have. and i'm not so hot at writing out recipes that i make up, but i tried! hope it makes enough sense for you to try to recreate it :) Not sure that anyone would hire me to write recipes!

Jen's made-up Layered Red Velvet Cake :)

Bake a store bought mix of Red Velvet cake as directed on the box. This year I used a bundt cake pan, then sliced the cake in half. (I’ve done 2- 9” rounds cakes in the past as well.)

Cream cheese mixture… one block of cream cheese softened, about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of sugar, and a dash of vanilla. Mix together and spread over bottom half of split bundt cake.

On top of the cream cheese, spoon out cherries from a cherry filling can onto the cream cheese mixture. I usually use about ¾ of the can, and I try not to use all the extra ‘goop’.

Place the top half of the bundt cake on the cream cheese mix and cherries.

Cover the entire cake with heaps of whipped topping.

Top with something fun… this year I colored sugar and sprinkled it on top. I’ve also used the rest of the cherry filling, and chocolate shavings in the past.

Enjoy :)
