Valentine's on the weekend. Yay, less daunting, right? It's not every day you make a beet velvet cake. Weeks ago, I made up my mind on a natural velvet cake and the hours spent in the kitchen was worth it. I doubled this recipe for the two layers with a slight change, 3 steamed beets instead of 2 cans of beets. I had to bake it longer, about 5 to 10 minutes more. The best part was the boiled flour frosting, no words just eat. The earthy taste of beets is noticeable, however it wasn't overpowering. I think the beet flavor mellows with time.
Stains were unavoidable, and so was trying out the beetroot on my face. I can't remember the last time I wore makeup, but I really like this look, so renaissance. Curiouser and curiouser, I've to try this tutorial. If not, get it on Etsy.
