    Title: Blue Velvet Cake
    Categories: Cakes, Desserts, Dairy, Cheese, Chocolate
    Yield: 9 servings

    1/2 c Butter, softened
    1 1/2 c Sugar
    2 lg Eggs; room temp
    1 ts Vanilla extract
    2 ts Royal blue food coloring
    2 dr Violet food coloring
    2 1/4 c A-P flour
    1 ts Baking soda
    1/2 ts Baking powder
    1 1/2 tb Cocoa powder
    1/2 ts Salt
    1 1/3 c Buttermilk; room temp
    1 tb White vinegar

    16 oz Cream cheese; softened
    1/2 c Butter; softened
    6 c Powdered sugar
    2 tb Milk
    1 ts Vanilla extract

    Set the oven @ 350+|F/175+|C.

    In another small bowl, combine the buttermilk and
    vinegar and set aside. Grease two 8" round cake pans.
    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle
    attachment, or a mixing bowl with a hand mixer, cream
    the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy,
    about five minutes. Mix in the eggs and mix in the
    vanilla extract.

    Mix in the blue food coloring, along with the violet
    food coloring. Mix thoroughly to incorporate the color,
    and adjust as needed.

    In a small bowl, whisk the dry ingredients to combine.
    Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the butter
    mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Mix until just
    combined. Add additional food coloring if necessary.

    Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared cake
    pans. Bake the cakes for 24 to 26 minutes until theyC╟╓re
    set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out
    clean. Once baked, remove the cakes from the oven and
    set them aside to fully cool.

    In a mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese and
    butter. Mix in two cups of powdered sugar, milk and
    vanilla extract. Gradually mix in the remaining powdered
    sugar until the mixture comes together. Turn the speed
    up on the mixer to whip the frosting until smooth.

    Place one cake layer on a cake stand. Top the layer with
    a generous amount of frosting, and place the second cake
    layer on top. Frost the exterior of the cake using a
    piping bag or offset spatula.
