Prepare 500 grams of FunCakes Mix for Red Velvet Cake as indicated on the package. Grease a baking pan with the Bake Release Spay and fill with the batter. Bake the cake in 40-45 minutes. Remove the cake, after baking, from the pan and let it cool down on a cooling grid.
Start with making the cream cheese glaze. Mix the butter and the cream cheese in a large bowl. Turn the mixer on the lowest setting and add the sugar in parts to the batter. Mix it all till the glaze is soft and creamy. Finally, add the vanilla flavor to at taste.
Cut the cake twice using a cake leveller. Cover the first layer with the cream cheese and place the second layer on top of it. Cover this layer also with the glaze and place the last layer on it. After placing the last layer, apply a thin layer of cream cheese on the cake to fill holes and get rid of any bumps. Put it in the fridge for 30 minutes and apply another layer of cream using a scaper to smoothen the edges.
Pipe some swirls on the cake for decoration and finish it with some sprinkles or chocolate.
