I I have a confession to make. Red Velvet was never my thing. The flavor confuses me but what confuses me more is its popularity. For one, my husband loves it. As for me, I just don’t get what people like about it except for the color. I LOVE RED! It’s my favorite and it’s the only reason why I am drawn to this cake in displays and stores especially when it’s contrasted with that white heavenly Cream Cheese Frosting. Speaking of which, I concluded that the frosting is what people actually crave for. But if so, they should just go and grab a cheesecake BUT THEY DON’T! This cake was such a mystery to me and I just had to understand it.
The confusion led to curiosity and the curiosity led to a pleasant discovery. I AM NOW HOOKED! It takes every inch of my determination not to get another slice of this beautiful cake and enjoy it while writing this post. I ate a slice and a half last night and another generous slice this morning. I really have to stop myself. This cake is so dense and moist – just the way I like my cake to be. My mother says so too. She said it’s unlike any other cake she tasted. She liked the texture very much or maybe she’s just my mother??? =pAnyways, need I say more about the perfection of paring Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting? Oh! And did I mention it has white chocolate chips too? I find that white chocolate pairs well with the red velvet flavor too so why not add it in as well? Yes please! White chocolate takes this cake to a whole new level. My husband dared to deny it because of the added calories but he just can’t. He couldn’t resist even for a second. He had to be honest and openly adore this threesome of a flavor. After all, our calories have to be worth it right? I mean, we cannot but take in calories so we have to make it count and be as delicious as it can be. Right? I think what we really have to look after is the actual amount of the food we take in. So self-control is still a must (I’m probably saying this more to myself =p).
