Ingredients to make Green Velvet Cake for Independence Day

For cake:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ounces green food coloring
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

For icing:

  • 1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, softened
  • 6 ounces Baker’s white chocolate, broken into pieces and melted, cooled slightly, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


To make cake: Preheat oven to 350ºC. Prepare 3 6-inch cake pans by greasing with butter, adding parchment paper circles to the bottom. Butter the papers and dust with flour, tapping out any excess. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, buttermilk, vinegar, and vanilla. Then stir in food coloring. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Slowly whisk in the dry ingredients to the egg mixture until completely combined.

Divide batter evenly between cake pans and then drop the pans on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. After about 10 minutes, remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack.

To make icing: In a large bowl using a stand or electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter on medium speed. Add melted chocolate and vanilla, and mix well. Add sugar gradually, beating until fluffy. Transfer half the frosting to a separate bowl for the crumb coat.
