Red Velvet – Interesting Choice January 3, 2009

Filed under: Daily Blog — Robin @ findgoodineveryday @ 8:54 pm

My family has often discussed the seasonality of cakes. Lemon is a summer cake. Spice is a fall cake. Chocolate and vanilla are all-season cakes. And red velvet is definitely a winter cake. (This was a big point of contention when Jeremy wanted red velvet for our June wedding 5 years ago.)

Since Cooper’s birthday falls in January, it seemed appropriate to make him red velvet cupcakes for the big day. In the moment of Cooper stuffing his face, I thought that it might not have been the best choice. But now, in looking at the pictures, it was perfect.

The image of a 1-year-old stuffing his face with red cake is priceless. And definitely the best part of my day (in addition to playing beauty parlor with Mason after dinner.)
