Just One Little Bite Red Whoopie Pie
Here in the mountains, Red Velvet Cake is one of life’s guilty pleasures. I’ve never made a Red Velvet Cake because we always recieve them for gifts during the Christmas holiday season.
Red Velvet Cookies are a lighter take; just one cookie shared with your lover is a pleasure that won’t weigh heavy on your guilt meter.
Give the rest away as little tokens of your affection.
Valentines – it’s all about the love.
