I remember watching Martha Steward a year or two ago and seeing the owner of Baked on the show featuring their red-hot red velvet cake for Valentines day.  Immediately after that show I visited the website and was so glad I didn’t live near them or I would have made multiple visits to their bakery.  Well, Baked has a new cookbook called Baked: New Frontiers in Baking.  Full of wonderful recipes, it’s the perfect gift for that friend of yours who loves baking.

 I love Red Velvet cake. It is one of my favorite cakes.  Ok, who am I kidding, I haven’t run into a cake I didn’t like.  I usually make red velvet cake around the holidays or for special request, but after seeing this mini confections of goodness I wondered why don’t I make this cake more often?  Plus these mini versions make it easy to make for dinner parties, birthday dinners etc.   Enjoy!
