red velvet

Can I tell you a truly sad story?  I have lived for years silently hating Red Velvet cake.  For some reason, I thought it was licorice/anise flavored so I always avoided it despite the ever alluring cream cheese icing.

Recently, my old roommate Cindy made this GIGANTOR Red Velvet to celebrate several birthdays in February (which Adam totally bogarted a birthday share of, by the way).  She made it all from scratch and it was so big, she had to make it on pizza pans.  I've never had a cake so moist and delicious in my life.  I'm embarrassed to say that I ate a piece as big as my head all by myself from the leftovers she sent us with.

I learned a valuable lesson though:  stop being so picky and stop being so judgy about food.  I might find I like something the second time around.

Now I just need to get her recipe and make one so I quit craving it incessantly.

  1. Love this! Glad you found a new favorite! I've NEVER TRIED red velvet cake. Never.
    I had also never tried strawberry cake until it was handed to me at a wedding. Of course then I HAD to try it. Um, I've been missing out!
    You are so right, need to remember to try new things and branch out. You never know what you might love!
