Red Velvet Bundt Cake

Hi everyone! It’s me, Gina from Kleinworth & Co.   I’m back today to share with you this decadent Red Velvet Bundt Cake w/ Kahlua Ganache I made last weekend for my family.  Everyone in my  family absolutely loves red velvet – anything red velvet.  If you have been over to visit me in my space- you have seen first hand that I am in red velvet overload over there.  I can’t seem to make enough red velvet goodies, especially this time of year.   I have been having so much fun creating sweet treats all decorated in pink & red – I can’t believe LOVE-Day is almost here already.

It was great to have red velvet cake.  I would typically top it with a cream cheese frosting – but this time I decided to make a Kahlua Ganache instead.  I then topped it with a little sweetened coconut & some Valentine sprinkles.  I love how it turned out.   Perfect for celebrating with your sweetie.

This recipe is rich & decadent – the ganache is the perfect compliment to the dense red velvet.  Of course I’m a huge fan of cake.  My mom was a cake decorator for part of her life so I had the pleasure of growing up eating all sorts of cake scraps all the time.  I always had the most elaborate cakes for the most mundane of occasions – but I absolutely loved it.   With her cakes- my mom had a way of making one feel like they were the most important person in the room.  Guess that is why I have such a fondness for cake.  It truly is my all time favorite dessert.

Any excuse I can find to use my cake stands- I’ll take it.  Something about placing your cake on a stand instead of a cake board or regular plate just makes it feel so special.  Makes me smile every time.
