Yesterday was my best friend/roommate’s 21st birthday! Happy Birthday Alexa!!
As you should be well aware, I bake birthday cakes for my friends. Today’s cake du jour is Red Velvet! Red Velvet cake is delicious all the time, but a Red Velvet Birthday Cake is even better. Something about adding the birthday ingredient in there just makes it so much more tasty. Also, when said cake is really easy to make, and comes with the most perfect cream cheese frosting you have ever laid eyes on, then it is even more wonderful. This cake is moist, has a very nice density to it, and came out in a lovely deep velvety red. The frosting makes enough to frost the cake very generously, which in my opinion, is the only way to frost. Skimpy frosting is simply unforgivable. Don’t wait for a birthday to make this one, celebrate any day! How about today? It is Leap Day after all! That seems like it would warrant a nice cake, especially this very nice cake. Besides, you won’t get to enjoy cake on this day for another 4 years!
