Red Velvet Cake

I was thinking to make this cake for a long time..........but didn't find a good reason to make this one.Yesterday was our 9th wedding anniversary and got a very good reason to bake this cake......and I was really happy to see the final result.The cake cake came out so good.

And one thing I got mistake on the cake was the spelling of 'anniversary',I missed one 'r' on the cake while writing because my 3 r's(my kids ridha,raed and raghd) were making me crazy and I missed an 'r' while writing LOL!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't notice the mistake then also when I took the cake and focused the camera on the cake I saw something was missing there Oh no I made spelling mistake hehehe!!!!!!!!!!
I was a little disappointed, then thought only we r there so let it be like that........
