Hidden beneath the swooping white frosting of this tiered dessert are stunning scarlet layers infused with buttermilk and cocoa. Red velvet cake, whose namesake hue comes from food coloring, is a favorite dessert in the South, but its exact origins are unknown. In honor of its adopted home, gum-paste magnolias adorn it here. For added flavor, we've substituted a tangy cream-cheese frosting for the standard flour-based icing, spreading it between each layer and outside.
The cake was moist and delicious, however, the cake was so heavy that there was not sufficient support for the weight of six tiers! I would recommend using cake separator plates, or using a dowel through all layers of the structure. When the cake was assembled at my daughter's wedding what started out 6 tiers, ended up being four! Do NOT follow the assembly instructions as they are inaccurate.
I haven't read it yet. I can't seem to get the rest of it
