Red Velvet Cake is a classic dessert that is known for its vibrant red color, subtle chocolate flavor, and creamy cream cheese frosting. This recipe uses buttermilk to keep the cake moist and tender, and the addition of vinegar reacts with the baking soda to help the cake rise. The cream cheese frosting adds a tangy sweetness that complements the cake perfectly. This cake is perfect for special occasions or just as a delicious dessert to enjoy with friends and family.
