red velvet

red velvet cake is quite possibly my favorite cake ever. I can’t decide if it’s the decadent red color or the cream cheese frosting that I like the best. last year for my birthday, dlb spent all day baking this amazing cake. mmmm… what are you making this year babe?

{btw, my birthday is Saturday. I’m such a big birthday fan, as my friends and co-workers can attest so I decided to do a week of birthday related posts. but thanks for the early birthday wishes!}

    I know. I love it, too. And sister Jamie Anne makes a pretty mean one. I hope you are having a happy birthday week!

    Hi Alyson,

    I’ve never had red velvet cake but would love to try. Care to share your recipe?

    BTW I love the calendar. Just received it last week.
