I recently started following a number of blogs - mostly cooking blogs - like Bakerella, Orangette and Tartelette. I was inspired by their food photography and delicious recipes to create a Valentine's Day treat for Duncan. We personally think our anniversary (Feb 29th) is waaay cooler than Hallmark's Day of Love, but we can't ignore it, so we made a great dinner (I ate meat!) and followed it up with these tasty bites that took about 3 hours to create (including fridge time, not all work time).
Behold... Red Velvet Cake Balls!!!
For the first time in my life, I made a cake from scratch. Turns out Red Velvet takes FOUR TABLESPOONS of red food coloring - I cleaned our house out!
Baked me a cake, cooled it and CRUMBLED IT! Very satisfying.
Mix that crumbled cake with cream cheese frosting (not made from scratch...)
Roll into balls and refrigerate!
Then the best part, dip in delicious melted chocolate. And I decided to be festive and cover with love sprinkles.
Last step, CONSUME!
