Keto Red Velvet Cake

When it comes to birthday cakes, Keto Red Velvet Cake is the thing. We’re not saying Keto Red Velvet Cake options are better than the others … but we get a little more excited when the latter’s results are at a party. Cream Cheese Frosting which is made from Swerve Confectionery, tastes amazing.

    1/2 cup almond milk
