Ingredients required:

Raspberry Pink Velvet Cake

3 c. cake flour spooned and leveled, (some more for pans)

1 tablespoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

4 cup fresh raspberries, slashed, additional for decorating

Cooking spray

4 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons seedless raspberry preserves

3 drops pink food coloring, optional

1/2 cup unsalted butter 

4 oz. cream cheese (at room temperature)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (pure)

1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

3 c. confectioners’ sugar

1/4 cup fresh raspberries

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Flour and grease cake pans 3 (8-inch). Then you mix the  flour, Baking powder, and salt in a bowl perfectly.
  2. In an electric hand mixer, on medium speed, beat in sugar and butter until it is light and creamy for approx — 1 to 2 minutes. 
  3. Now whisk in 1 cup raspberries, and beat again until smooth. Similarly add egg, one by one, beating after each addition until blended (mixture should look curdled). Last, add vanilla too. 
  4. Now, beat in flour mixture and buttermilk after reducing the speed of the mixer to low. It should be done alternatively by starting and ending with flour, just until the flour mixture is blended.   
  5. Let’s add some color to the cake. If desired, add in food colors. Now, pour batter into prepared pans equally and keep it to bake until the cake passes the toothpick test and the toothpick comes out clean. It will take approx. 23-25 minutes.
  6. Place the pan on wire racks and let it cool down for 10 minutes. After that, invert it to cool completely. 
  7. Slip in those preserves and additional 3 cups of raspberries in a bowl
  8. Place one layer on the cake plate and cover with half of the preserved mixture. Repeat the process. Now cover with the remaining layer of the cake. 
  9. Cover the top and sides of the cake with yummy frosting and finish by decorating with raspberries, edible flowers, and meringue kisses.

For frosting

  1. To prepare for frost, beat cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until it’s creamy. 
  2. Now add in raspberries, salt and vanilla until everything is churned (approx. 15-20 seconds). Now, finally, add confectioners’ sugar after reducing the speed of the mixer to low. Blend it properly  for about 45 seconds to 1 minute.
