Red  Velvet Cream Cheese Bundt cake is my recipe of the day with  the monthly Bundt Bakers blogging group. For December we are  baking up red and green Bundts in celebration of winter holidays.

This Red Velvet cake definitely falls into this category. I love that it has a double-cream cheese flavor from both the filling and the frosting.

On top of that, the cake itself is very moist and would be perfect with some vanilla ice cream.

Because the cake contains cream cheese in both  the filling and the frosting, it is advised to keep this one refrigerated.  Of course if it is being served immediately after baking and decorating, it can probably sit out at room  temp for another hour before any leftovers are put away.
