When I was little I remember my mom making red velvet cakes. I think it was a challange for her to try and make the ultimate one because I recall the tweaking of the cake trying to make it more red than the last time or making a different icing..anyway it was always wonderful.
And now these days Chris' mom does the same thing with her red velvet
cake...must be a mom thing
or in my case..a husband thing!
Chris made his first red velvet cake the other night!
And with all due credit he is the cook of the house..I am the cleaner upper!
I do cook some but its just not my thing..he loves it and watches over the food with endless patience....I tend to abandon it
Anyway..he made his mom's icing recipe..it takes a long time, cooking part of it..mixing the other part forever and then mixing it all together..it was an all evening event. And little Carter was intriqued with all the clattering in the kitchen.
(I'll have that story in a later post)
I happen to capture the dive into the icing..I think he approves of it!
