{Recipe} Red Velvet Trifle

Okay, we know that everyone loves Red Velvet Cake, and who cannot resist a Trifle?  Add them together and you have a truly decadent dessert!

Red Velvet Cake

  • ½ c. shortening
  • 1 ½  c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 2 oz. red food coloring
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 ½ c. cake flour
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar

Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and cream. In a small bowl, mix cocoa, food coloring, and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Sift flour and set aside. Mix vanilla with buttermilk and set aside. Dissolve baking soda in vinegar, then fold into buttermilk. Add flour and buttermilk alternately to the creamed mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes in a Bundt pan, 25-30 minutes in a 9x13 glass pan.

Cool completely and frost.


  • 5 Tbsp. flour
  • ½ c. milk
  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. powdered sugar

Heat in a saucepan over low heat, milk and flour. (DO NOT BOIL) When just below boiling, remove from heat and add other ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake.

*For those of you who may not want to take the time to make a cake from scratch or those who tend not to have buttermilk on hand, there’s always the “box” cake option, even in the Red Velvet flavor. The true treasure in this recipe is the butter icing. My husband is such a fan, he insists on a double batch of frosting so there will be plenty of extra to drizzle on after the pieces are served.

Red Velvet Trifle Directions:

WB 147

Follow cake and icing directions thoroughly. Allow both to cool completely. You may refrigerate them overnight if desired. Cube the cake into bite size pieces. Layer the cake and icing in a clear glass or jar. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

WB 154

The whipped cream may also be topped with cake crumbs, or layer chocolate shavings in with the icing just for fun. Try white chocolate, fruit, maybe chocolate mousse.  I’d love to hear what other creative variations of this recipe you come up with.   

Add a little bobble at the bottom of the glass to class up the dessert even more!  I’ll have a tutorial how to make this bobble in the next couple of weeks.  They are super easy!!

Happy baking, and even happier tasting!

  1. From the picture it looks like I make both the cake and icing and let them dry. Then I cut up the cake and layer the cake pieces and icing in the glass. Is that correct? I am making them tomorrow because they look delicious! The part that is confusing me is in the directions it says to frost the cake when cooled.. Is that seperate frosting than the icing?

  2. The cheese wοuld be melteԁ and bubbly, but vеry best of
    all the toppings ωould not bе burnt. Do-it-youгself brеaԁ is not оnlу simple to make, but it hapρenѕ

  6. I can't help but believe that the market for products with photos imprinted on them, now made accessible by the Internet, represents a truly enormous opportunity. It is hard to imagine how athletes can do such entertaining and funny facial expressions, but apparently the desire to win is more important than image. While almost every cat is a work of aesthetic beauty, they are often animals that combine silliness and a fierce disposition.

    oven, by placing a lampshade on his head and standing on a dresser so he looks like a
    lamp. Many people prefer the link baiting to increasing the profit in the online marketing field.
