Rose Velvet Bundt Cake

This bundt cake is full of chocolaty red velvet goodness. Instead of covering the rose bundt with frosting, I put the frosting in the middle.

Did I mention that I collect bundt pans? I love them. This rose bundt pan is no exception. I was thinking of a red rose bundt cake and thought what better way to make it red than use a red velvet batter.

Ilove the cream cheese frosting that normally goes over a red velvet cake but did not want to hide the rose pattern of this bundt pan. So I decided to put the frosting in the middle of the pan.

The middle of this cake truly is good. It is a rich middle full of coconut goodness. If you are not a fan of coconut you can use vanilla extract instead of the coconut. Either way it is equally delicious!
