5 Ways to Enjoy Red Velvet

August 20, 2011

Red Velvet has become a sensation, you can find it in almost any bake shop.  And for good reason, the chocolate cake pairs perfectly with the sweet and slightly tart cream cheese frosting.  Here are five delicious interpretations of this red and white treat.

Red velvet is *not* a ‘dense chocolatey cake’. It only has a few tablespoons of cocoa!
