Hi Everyone, I am a newlywed and have always loved to cook, bake, and entertain. Lately I decided to start making cakes and now I can't stop; whether its cakes, cupcakes, cake truffles, etc!! I just love everything about them... the creativity, versatility, and the love that they bring to those who eat them.

Red Velvet Cake with a Chocolaty Twist..


Happy Birthday Ryan!
This cake was for my husband’s birthday so you know it is a RED VELVET cake, lol.
But this year he didn’t want me to spend a lot of time decorating his cake… he just wanted a plain and simple Red Velvet cake. Buuuuttt he knows that I can not make a cake without decorating it (a little), so I decided to incorporate our little family and add a chocolaty twist to it :)

So I made a red velvet cake, filled and covered with cream cheese icing, and then adorned it with some home made chocolate chips and chocolate / cream cheese swirls. AND he LOVED it!!! He really liked the small addition of the chocolate to the cake. And he of course loved seeing all the cute dogs (representing our 4, now 3  :(  furry babies.)
