Red Velvet Cake has long been a southern staple along with Carrot Cake and Pound Cake.  When I was growing up I remember eating Red Velvet Cake at our annual family Christmas party. Each year my aunt would organize the best Christmas parties for our family. We would all participate in the family gift exchange, play games, and indulged in some really delicious food. For us kids, it was the most anticipated party of the year!  Those memories are priceless. I’m so grateful for family and togetherness.  For my family, Red Velvet was such a popular dessert. If you could make a good Red Velvet Cake you were praised for years on end. I’m just laughing about how serious we were about that Red Velvet…….We didn’t play! One year the men in my family even had a Red Velvet bake-off!  I can’t remember who won? But they still talk about that bake-off to this day.  That’s what I love about baking, the timeless memories that a recipe can create.
