Luscious Red Velvet


Red velvet, the mac-daddy of all cakes. It's my personal belief that a red velvet and vanilla cake is the true test of how great a bakery is. Of course, I can't be a hypocrite. It took me two tries to get it right, but the results were phenomenal.

The word that comes to mind after eating one of these is "luscious". The cake rich and full of chocolately flavor. The deep red color is bold and beautiful. And to top it all off, a light and creamy cream cheese, mascarpone cheese, and whipped cream concoction that just makes you say "yuuuuuuuuuuuummmm" with a mouth full.
