Red Velvet Cake Frosting
A delectable frosting on cake creates magic and never fails to add to its appeal. Red velvet cake frosting is no exception in this case. The reddish tone of red velvet cake is wonderfully complimented by traditional white cream cheese frosting.

Its white tone looks incredible on the monochromatic cake and awards a tantalizing graceful touch.
Though cream cheese frosting is the most popular choice for red velvet cakes, but many prefer to top their cakes with creamy vanilla icing. Some take one step forward and add coconut shredding in their cream cheese frosting. A pinkish tint on your cream cheese frosting can prepare your cake for being served in baby showers or birthdays. Dainty sprinkles always add an extra charm to the red velvet cakes. Make your imagination run wild while decorating the red velvet cakes with cream cheese frosting. Adorn them with chocolate shavings or sprinkle loose cake crumbs on top; you can never go wrong with red velvet cake frosting!
Take extra care while frosting your cake to avoid damaging it, so freeze it before the frost is applied. For those who love sweeter and stiffer frosting, they can add few more cups of sugar. But keep in mind that with every cup, you are sacrificing the tanginess of the cream cheese. So pick up your spatula, gather up the ingredients and let the magic begin!

• A pinch of salt.
Combine cream cheese and butter into a smooth mixture in a food processor.
