    Hi all,
    I've got a 12x18 pan ready and waiting for me to cut into a butterfly for my dds BD party tomorrow (or should I say later today, :indif: way past bedtime)

    Anyway, I was going to whip up my buttercream recipe and something made me stop and say what are you doing, this is Red Velvet flavor, it's GOT to be special.........

    Suggestions??? Recipes???

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    I think a butter cream frosting would be fine. I love cream cheese, but cream cheese, is kinda an acquired taste for some anyway. It will taste great!!

    I don't see why you couldn't use buttercream. Red Velvet is just chocolate with a whole bunch of red dye in it.

    Well I did my butter cream, it was not what I wanted, but I made do in time I had. DD loved it, so that's all that counts. When hubby downloads pics I'll post it.
