|Red Velvet Petal Cake with Almond Cream Cheese Frosting and Pearl Sprinkles|
Frosting recipe 1 out of 6 from my Tale of 12 Cakes week:
This cake was my sister's favorite, and for good reason. It was a beauty, and was the first time I had tried using the petal-decorating technique on a cake. The sides were a bit more tricky than I expected, but the top came out just lovely.
Almond-Infused Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz unsalted butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 C powdered sugar
1 t vanilla extract
1 t almond extract
In a large bowl, beat together butter, cream cheese, and vanilla and almond extracts in your stand mixer. With the miter on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too stiff, add milk until you reach your desired consistency.
