The Best of Everything

By ben  

Thanks to Jenelle, I had a super-terrific Valentine’s Day. As you can see from the above photo, I got two cards (one from Jenelle, one from Eliana), two bags of popcorn, a Foo Fighters CD/DVD, and a cake.

Let me go into more detail about the cake. It’s a red velvet cake, and Jenelle made it for me. Though I got a bit of help from others, I ate most of the cake myself over a period of three days. Prior to this one, I never had red velvet cake. It might just be Jenelle’s amazing skills, but I think this kind of cake is quite delicious. The taste is somewhere between yellow cake and chocolate cake, both of which I like. The cream cheese frosting is great, too. I’ve had that kind of frosting on carrot cake many times before, but never on an extra-tasty red velvet cake. I also appreciate that Jenelle did not put an entire vial of red food coloring into the cake as the recipe directed, instead using just a little bit. It doesn’t have to be bright red to be yummy.

So, to sum things up, I loved pretty much everything about the red velvet cake, especially the person who made it. Perhaps another cake like this will appear on the kitchen counter when my birthday rolls around. 🙂
