My dearest Red Velvet,
How do I love you? Let me count the ways. First, there’s your fluff of white creamy frosting—an icing that may gild many a lesser cake, rightfully earning for itself all the adoration and attention. But on you, Red Velvet, it meets its true purpose: to cast its sweet richness like a crown upon the reigning cake supreme.
Because, Red Velvet, you are Cake Majesty. You wear your royal red with the dignity and grace of one who was destined for it. And you prove your fate with a feat like none other: A cocoa coup d’etat. The unexpected dose of chocolate sends your approval ratings through the roof.
And despite all you’ve accomplished, you’re still one of the softest and sweetest creations I have ever known. Red Velvet: You rule. And I am forever your humble and adoring servant.
Red Velvet love isn’t limited to cakes – try martinis, cookies and even ravioli!
