VALENTINE’S PINK VELVET CAKE

To make this pink velvet cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Cake ingredients: 

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp butter vanilla emulsion oil (or very good quality vanilla extract)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Pink gel coloring

Filling/frosting/ decorating

  • 2 cups strawberries (cut into small pieces)
  • Strawberry frosting
  • 1 cup shredded coconut

Notes:
– I highly recommend sifting the flour because it makes the cake more airy and soft.
– If you don’t want to use strawberry frosting, you can use my silky soft buttercream icing recipeinstead. Just tint it with some pink gel coloring.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
In a deep bowl, cream butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Step 2:
Add eggs and mix again.

Step 3: 
In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
And mix with a spoon.

Step 4:
Add these dry ingredients to your wet mixture, alternately with buttermilk… mixing properly after each addition.

Step 5:
Pour this batter into an 8×2 heart pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Step 6:
Allow your cake to cool and come down to room temperature.

Step 7:
Then, cut it in half and fill it with strawberry frosting and top it off with about 1 cup of small strawberry pieces.
Place the other half of the cake on top of this.

Step 8:
Now, frost your entire cake with strawberry frosting.

Step 9:
Cover the sides of the cake with finely shredded coconut

Step 10:
Use Tip # 1M (star tip) to make a design on top of your cake (leaving some space in the center) and also make a design on the cake board.

Step 11:
Fill the space on top of on your cake with the remaining pieces of strawberries and top it all off with a few round sprinkles.

And you are done!
