Alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk to the large bowl, beginning and ending with flour, scraping down sides of down as needed. Add the red food coloring and mix until thoroughly incorporated.

  • Use a cookie scoop (to ensure uniform size and shape) to scoop batter onto prepared baking sheets, about 2” apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, remove and cool completely before frosting and assembly.

  • To make the cream cheese filling, either by hand or using an electric mixer, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add in confectioners sugar and finish with vanilla, beating well. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed until fully incorporated. Place cream cheese filling into piping bags.
