Hubster is almost done finals (the past two weeks here have been crazy), so I’ve been the stressed one and needed some therapeutic baking. I decided to celebrate my blogiversary and him finishing this semester with a cake. Red Velvet Cake. I have this idea in my head that it is a southern recipe/tradition, but there’s no fact backing it. Maybe it’s due to Steel Magnolias or Jessica Simpson. Anyway red velvet cake can be so delicious.
Usually red velvet cake is layers and uses butter cream frosting or cream cheese frosting, but last night I decided to drizzle it with chocolate ganache. I used my baby bundt pans (so fun!). My recipe isn’t quite yet perfected, but it’s quite tasty. I think two more batches and I’ll have it down. Hint: Use dark baking cocoa…
Look at that color!
