To bake red velvet cake at home, all you need is:

For the cake:

- 1 cup butter (room temperature)

- 1 1/2 cup castor sugar

- 1 tsp vanilla essence

- 2 eggs

- 2 cups flour

- 1 tbsp cocoa powder

- 1 tsp baking soda

- 1 tbsp red food colouring

For the icing:

- 4 cups hung curd (hung for minimum 3 hours)

- 2/3 cup icing sugar

- 1 tsp vanilla essence

Instructions for the cake:

- Grease two 7-inch baking tins with butter and dust with flour. Tap out the excess flour. Set aside.

- In a large bowl, whip the butter until it has a creamy texture. Then add the castor sugar and vanilla essence. Beat until well combined. Next, add the eggs and beat again.

- Preheat the oven to 180 Degrees Celsius

- Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and mix well. Add the food colouring and pour the batter into two greased tins. Bake for 25-30 minutes or bake it until a skewer inserted, comes out clean. Set aside to cool.

Instructions for the icing:

In a large bowl, beat the hung curd lightly until it is creamy. Add the sugar, vanilla essence and mix well. Empty the icing into a piping bag and refrigerate.

How to assemble the cake:

- Cut the bulging top crust to even out the cakes. Flip them so that the cake is even and easier to ice. Pipe a layer of icing onto the first cake.

- Place the other cake on top and press lightly. Pipe another layer of icing and spread evenly to fully cover the cake.

- Decorate with toppings and serve!
