Dana’s Red Velvet Cake

Dana Clayton and her mother were blessed with this Red Velvet Cake recipe in the 70s by a friend from work. They started pulling the recipe out for Christmas and it has been around ever since. When a new family member was born on December 23rd, it quickly became his birthday cake. Every Christmas, Dana always gets the phone call to make sure she is bringing THE cake! This beautiful Red Velvet Cake is the center piece at her Mother’s Christmas gathering.
