Red Velvet Cake:

  • Put the red velvet cake mix, eggs, milk, sour cream and vegetable oil in the mixing bowl. Stir until combined and then beat for two minutes.
  • Prepare three 9-inch pans by greasing, flouring and lining them with parchment paper. Divide the batter between the pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
  • Allow the cakes to cool for 30 minutes, remove from pans, peel off the parchment paper and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Once the cakes are cool, frosting with the cream cheese whipped cream filling/frosting recipe from below. Use about three cups on the bottom and middle layers. Use the final three cups to pipe the frosting onto the top layer using a large round tip.
  • Garnish with sprinkles.
  • Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

  • Beat softened cream cheese using a stand mixer.
  • Add the heavy cream and vanilla and beat well.
  • With the mixer set at a low speed, slowly add the powdered sugar.
  • Fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
