Variations and Tips:

– To give the dough a special touch, add a pinch of cinnamon to the dough. It adds warmth to the flavor palette without overpowering the classic taste.- If you don’t have buttermilk, you can make

your own buttermilk by mixing 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice with enough milk to make 1 cup, then letting it sit for about 10 minutes.

– Wear an apron or clothing that you don’t mind getting a hint of red! The food coloring can be a little messy, but it’s just fun to make this colorful cake.


– Don’t like too much frosting? For a lighter touch, you can halve the frosting recipe.- Make it like cupcakes! Simply set the baking time to around 20 minutes, ideal for sharing or selling cakes.
