From homemade coffee creamer to red velvet hot chocolate to cheesecakes and macarons. Prepare to have your tummy rumbling as you browse!

I love red velvet cake. I have made it for birthdays, parties and dessert at home on numerous occasions. Many years ago a friend gave me a tip to make red velvet cake even more amazing. I haven’t stopped baking it since.

As you may know, red velvet cake has vinegar as an ingredient. Vinegar reacts with the baking soda in the batter, to create that one of a kind flavour. My secret to red velvet cake is to use apple cider vinegar. It makes the colour more intense without more food colouring, and it makes the cake smoother.

Here are 12 Decadent Red Velvet recipes that have piqued my interest. I have a feeling you will want to try a few of them yourself.
