While in New York City, I noticed a definite trend. Red velvet cake everywhere. Here's a mini cupcake at Lily O'Briens, an Irish chocolate café at Bryant Park.
My niece Sylvie was feeling peckish, so she got herself a slice of their red velvet cake.
While strolling around the city the next day, we spotted these red velvet cupcakes at a bakery called Crumbs.
It put me in mind of a red velvet cake I made a few years ago for a party. I got the recipe from an issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine.
So when I got home from my trip and invited a few family members over for a barbecue, I thought a red velvet cake was just the thing to make for dessert. I think everyone agreed it was a good choice. Great colour, eh? Tasted good too.
