Step 02: Then throw that in the blender to try and get all of as many of the strings out of the sweet potatoes as you can while that’s mixing.
Step 03: Throw the empty pie crust in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes and then add all of the other ingredients to sweet potatoes. It should be nice and silky.
Step 04: Then throw half of it and fill the crust with sweet potato mixture. Next, throw that in the oven for 30 minutes when it’s done baking.
Step 05: Fill the rest of the pie crust up with red velvet mix and throw that in the oven for another 30 minutes so it’ll be an hour and 15 minutes total. Now your sweet potato pie red velvet cake is ready to serve.
