How to Make Red Velvet Cake with blueberries

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter two 8-by-2-inch round cake pans. Line with parchment paper, and butter again. Dust with flour, and tap out the excess set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together cake flour, cocoa, and baking powder, set aside.
  • With an electric mixer combine the butter and sugar, and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 15 mins.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add vanilla, salt, food colouring, and water.
  • In a small bowl, stir together baking soda and vinegar; add to batter. Beat on medium speed for 10 seconds.
  • Divide batter between prepared pans, and bake until a cake tester inserted into the centre comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove pans from oven, and transfer to a wire rack to cool, about 15 minutes. Turn cakes out onto rack, cool.
  • Make frosting:
  • Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Place 1 cake layer, flat side up, on platter. Spread 1 cup frosting over top of cake. Arrange 1 basket raspberries and 1/2 basket blueberries atop frosting, pressing lightly to adhere.
  • Top with second cake layer, flat side down. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Arrange remaining berries decoratively over top of cake
