What's the Xmas color? coloRED!

Too much time has passed since Ihave talked about Xmas with U, and it's December!!
And, we're in December, it's clear: you should wear red! And your home should wear red too! And your baby, and your outfit, your hair even! hahaha Well, I'm exaggerating, but truth is that I love red, so, what excuse is better than Xmas to use it??
We're going to use it in the home!
This one is a very cute idea for your room. Just three colors: Red, Black & White!
This is a very stylish kitchen!! Maybe not a good idea if you like eating between hours!!
Love this living! But maybe, I'll use this decoration for a store, or for a cafe, for example, better than for home!

Coming back to the kitchen!

Red Velvet Cake!
This is a very easy recipe! All of U know that I'm not a good cook, so trust on me!
What U need:

  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 2 ounces red food coloring
  • 2 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • White frosting (for the whit frosting you need 2 tablespoons flour, 1 cup milk, 1 cup unsalted butter, 1 cup confectioners' sugar an 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the shortening, eggs and sugar. In a separate small bowl, mix together the cocoa and food coloring. Add the paste to the shortening mixture. Sift the flour and salt together over parchment. Add to the batter alternately with the buttermilk in 3 additions. Add the vanilla extract. Fold in the baking soda and vinegar. Pour the batter into 2 greased 9-inch cake pans. Bake for 30 minutes or until an inserted cake tester comes out clean. Let cool on a cooling rack. Invert the cakes from the pans. 
 Frost the top of the first layer with frosting and set the second layer on top. Frost the entire cake with remaining frosting.
And, for all of U who doesn't know how to make the white frosting, recipe follow: 
 Frosting: Over medium heat, cook the flour and milk until thickened. Let cool. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in the flour mixture.
And voi-lá, there you have your Red Velvet Cake!
Now we have red home and stomach, outfit turn!
