I made a colorless red velvet cake topped with cute gingerbread cookies! I did not add any coloring and I used red rice flour to make the color, but I think it comes out a much prettier and more luxurious color than the one made with coloring. The sheet is moist and fluffy, so it goes well with the cream cheese cream and is really delicious. I spilled chocolate ganache and decorated with gingerman cookies, sheet powder, and rosemary, but I think a different red velvet cake came out. It goes so well with Christmas and it’s a better cake because it doesn’t contain any coloring.
