  • Cream cheese. Homemade though and not the stuff from the can. It's pretty easy to make the frosting. I've had red velvet cake with buttercream and even with fondant, but in my opinion, cream cheese frosting is the best for red velvet cake.

  • Growing up the only frosting we ever put on Red Velvet was buttercream frosting. It is very simple to make. 1 box of confectioners sugar. 1/2 cup melted margerine, approx. 1/4 cup of milk and vanilla. Melt the margerine, pour it over the sugar in a bowlbegine stirring then add the milk and vanilla. Stirr until smooth and creamy. Sometimes a little more milk is needed but add a bit at a time..too much and it gets runny really fast.
