Red Yeast Choco Cake

Wanted to bake a red velvet cake
using natural ingredients
instead of the 2 Tbsp of red colouring

I used red yeast, grounded into powder
dissolve in water

The colour did not turn out red
because the colour of cocoa dominated

275g sifted self raising flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp red yeast powder
2 Tbsp water
8 oz butter
7 oz castor sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup milk

1) Sieve together all dry ingredients
2) dissolve red yeast powder in water
3) cream butter & sugar until light
4) add eggs, one at a time
5) add vanilla essence
6) fold in dry ingredients, add milk as required
7) bake in preheated oven 175'C for 30-35min

Cream Cheese Topping
6 oz butter
16 oz cream cheese
16 oz powdered sugar (sifted)
2 Tbsp milk ( needed only when cream is too stiff)

1) cream butter, add cream cheese
2) add sifted sugar when well combined
3) add milk if necessary

I did not make the cream cheese because I was quite disappointed with the
colour.  Will try again, adjusting the ingredients.
