  • Cocoa powder- 2 tbsp (16gms)
  • Baking soda- 1 tbsp
  • Salt- 1 tbsp
  • Sugar- 1 ½ cups (300gms)
  • Buttermilk- 1 cup (240ml) at room temperature

  • Vinegar- 1 tbsp
  • Eggs- 2
  • Butter- ½ cup (115gms) at room temperature

For frosting:

  • Heavy cream- 1 ¼ cups (300ml) cold
  • Cream cheese- 2 cups (450gms) at room temperature
  • Powdered sugar- 1 ½ cups (190 gms)
  • Vanilla extract- 1 tbsp


  • Firstly, preheat the oven to 350F (175C).
  • Take a big bowl, add sugar and butter to it. Beat them up until you get a smooth texture.
  • Add eggs one by one while beating the mixture until the mixture blends up perfectly.
  • Now, add oil, vinegar, vanilla extract, buttermilk to the mixture and mix them up thoroughly.
  • Now, gradually, add all the dry ingredients and stir them all together.
  • Put in the food colouring and then mix everything until it reaches a smooth and fluffy consistency. 
  • After this, you need to grease an 8- inch cake baking mold with butter, apply butter paper into it and pour the batter into it. You may bake all the batter at one time or else you can bake it in two halves.
  • Now, put it into the oven and bake for at least 30-40 minutes.
  • Take it out and check whether it is cooked properly or not by inserting a toothpick into it. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the cake is properly baked. If not, bake it again for 3-4 more minutes.
  • Take out the cake out of molds and let them cool for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, start preparing the frosting.
  • Take a bowl and add cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract to it. Blend them all.
  • Beat them until you get a smooth, creamy texture.
  • Take another bowl and beat the heavy cream. And then add cream cheese mixture by mixing it with cut and fold technique.
  • Cut the cake into two layers and keep aside the leftover bread crumbs for garnishing.
  • Place one of the cake layers on a plate and start applying the frosting cream at the flat side of the cake layer.
  • Put another cake layer over the first one. 
  • Cover the whole cake with frosting vanilla cream by applying it even on all the sides and edges.
  • Garnish the cake with red velvet bread crumbs. You may also use other garnishing items of your choice like white chocolate chip, chocolate chip, sprinkles, etc.
  • Keep the cake into the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours before serving.
