About Me

A Red Velvet Christmas

Before marrying my amazing husband nine years ago, I had never baked a cake in my life. At our wedding shower, one of my beloved aunts gifted me with several types of cake pans including three single layer ones. Never one to waste a gadget, I anxiously stirred up my first desert, a towering rich red velvet cake, with my new cake pans. Since baking this first cake, I’ve become known around my community as an expert red velvet cake baker. Around Christmas time, I always get requests to make this tantalizingly delicious dessert. One of the secrets to my success is adding an abundant amount of liquid to my batter in the form of oil and buttermilk. On this blog, you will discover the other ingredients needed to have your own red velvet Christmas this year.
