Red Velvet Cake. What can I say the deep red cake and its cream cheesy layers? The first time I became introduced to this beloved cake was when I moved to Atlanta in the 90s. Now, I know it is a fan favorite across the country, but southerners are serious about their Red Velvet Cake, y’all. Admittedly, I am a little turned off by the dark red coloring, as I tend to be a little suspicious of baked goods that are primary colors. Even so, I confess. As a single girl and a northerner transplant trying to find a man, I thought it was important to master two recipes, biscuits and Red Velvet Cake. I mean, the old adage is The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right?

That’s what I did. I learned how to make some pretty kick-ass flaky biscuits and perfectly moist, make-you-want-to-get-up-and-sing Red Velvet Cake.  Turns out, now that I am baking for others, Red Velvet is the most requested treat, whether as a layer cake,

cupcakes,

or specialty cake.

So, the two recipes found me a mate, right? Wrong. Sadly, the old adage is just that, old. So old, in fact, it forgot about me as it moved on to other want-to-be lovebirds. It’s all good, though. I am older, wiser, and don’t have to clean anyone else’s mess. Ha!

That’s doesn’t mean you can’t make a special cake for your significant sweetheart for Valentine’s day, which is right around the corner. Then, as long as you’re making the effort, step the cake up with an unexpected surprise.

I have wanted to play with the idea of a cheesecake center for a long time.  Finally, I got off my butt and worked it out.  And, what a cake it turned out to be, much to special for my novice photography skills to capture.  Luckily, Tami stepped in last weekend as she hooked me, and several of my cakes. up with her stunning talents.  Thanks for making my cake look beautiful, my wonderful friend!
