Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

Cassy Morris of Fig & Salt is back this afternoon with what can only be described as a SHOW STOPPER of a cake.

Cassy’s red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting must be seen to be believed. She makes hers super tall with copious amounts of icing, piling deep red fresh flowers on stop for visual effect.

I know two whole bottles of colouring seems excessive but go with it… Cassy assures us this is the only way to achieve that distinctive rich deep red colour.

Harrison Balodis was housesitting a cottage in Pambula, on the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales for two weeks in 2012. He instantly fell in love with this quaint little place, in the centre of town. He told the owner he would be the first in line to purchase if she ever decided to sell. Four years later, he got the call.

In 2016, Harrison and his partner Miranda O’Rourke packed up their lives in Sydney and moved south to set up their new home in the 150-year-old cottage. They embarked on a big DIY renovation and restoration project, enlisting local friends to help with the building and scouring op-shops for all the perfect interior pieces.

Two years later, and they opened up their beloved cottage home as a holiday rental – Lotte’s Hjem, named after the owner Harrison had bought it from. Whilst interstate travel may be temporarily off the cards for some of us, we’re definitely earmarking this cosy coastal cottage for future holiday plans!
