Slasher Red Velvet Naked Cake
We used two boxes of red velvet cake mix divided between three 9” cake pans to make this 3-tiered slasher cake.
Once baked, cut the top off each cake so they are completely flat. Wrap them and put them into the freezer. Freezing them prevents a lot of the crumbs coming off when icing it.
Place the first cake onto your cake tray and add cream cheese frosting to the top. Place the second cake on top of that, and again, frost the top. Repeat for the top tier. Frost around the outside of the cakes leaving gaps for red sections of the cake to show through.
We placed a knife in the center of the cake, and then drizzled strawberry glaze over the top of the cake to make it appear that blood was running over the sides.
