2. Getting Started

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease three 9-inch round cake pans with butter, dust with flour and tap to remove any excess. This will prevent your cake from sticking to the pan for easy removal. Pro tip: Flour can leave white dust on the surface of your cake. To avoid this, you can substitute cocoa. Not only will help to maintain the cake's rich, red coloring, it will give your dessert an extra hint of chocolatey flavor.
