Cake, that is. I had a cute card for MoBob, and baked a red velvet cake with white frosting for V-Day. I found it a little disconcerting to eat a cake of this color, although MB liked it very much.

I got a hog mug after all. That is to say, a mug with the Arkansas Razorbacks mascot - a red, angry pig - on it. From Wal-Mart. I asked MB if this was a spontaneous purchase, and he said, no, he'd been eyeballing it for awhile.

ETA: gertruderocks kindly sent me a recipe for red velvet cake from the venerable NYT no less. She says it's a southern thing (or thang). Mine was courtesy of Duncan Hines cake mix.

Red cake kind of freaks me out too, but it tastes good and I've heard that it's kind of a tradition in the South.

I suppose so - it was actually tasty, but the color threw me off. (Although I enjoyed yellow watermelons!)

Is that yours in the picture or the 'cook book's'? Mighty impressive either way.

Nope. Courtesy of Google images I'm afraid. Ours had white frosting slopped all over.

Oooh, those are fun to make! Something about dumping whole bottles of food coloring in feels so decadent. Mine never turn out that pretty, though.

Mine neither. Plus red cake looks so...sinister.

I think the next time red velvet cake is called for I'll have some else do the baking duties - I had batter splattered all over myself and I looked like something out of a horror movie!
