Festive ideas: Halloween red velvet cake recipe

I am no Nigella Lawson but I do love a big celebration with good food and fancy dress parties. I haven’t always celebrated Halloween but, this year with having a little one who loves notifying everyone in the house that someone is at the door, I thought, why not?

My festive Halloween cake this year was:

  • 2 boxes of ready mix red velvet cake
  • 3 tubs of ready vanilla icing (I made a 4 layer cake)
  • 1 tube of concentrated red food colouring

I had fun decorating a home made cake with some left over decorations I used for the front door from Amazon .
