My Funfetti Red Velvet Brownie Sheet Cakes makes a delicious Valentine’s Day dessert or anytime dessert in no time at all!
Combos of all kinds seem to be all the rage right now! The combinations being done in the food world are just so much fun! So I decided to put my own spin on some flavors that people usually love! The whole make it your own deal, you know?
With Valentine’s Day approaching soon I just had to make a few fun and slightly different combos of my own!
Did you catch my Red Velvet (Valentine’s) Brookies last week? I had so much fun with last week’s combo dessert I wanted to make another one with a really good frosting!
So, today I have made for you a Funfetti Red Velvet Brownie Sheet Cake with a blush buttercream frosting! Also, in the buttercream frosting I have a hint of cherry and almond to make the buttercream even more incredible!
I guarantee you this buttercream frosting is guaranteed to please! Or you can always use canned frosting if you prefer.
A couple on details first. Make sure you use a 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan that is 1-inch high to prevent overflow during baking. Spray pan generously with cooking spray.
First put together the Valentine’s Funfetti cake batter and pour it into the prepared pan. Then put together the Red Velvet brownie batter according to the instructions below. Pour that over the Funfettii batter. Swirl batters together with the tip of a knife, pulling some cake batter to the top surface.
While that is baking, make your buttercream frosting and set it aside. Take the cake out of the oven, let it cool completely. You can either follow my instructions below or change it however you want to.
Put the cake in the fridge until you serve it. Cut the cake, serve and ENJOY!
