With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought I would share some dishes befitting of a romantic dinner for two. I am starting with dessert because, well, it’s my favorite part. 🙂 This dessert combines two classic sweets that are often associated with the holiday. It’s also much easier to make than it looks, so don’t be intimidated at all! I’m about to let you in on two little secrets, so lean really close to your screen while reading this.
- Red velvet cake is pretty much chocolate cake with red dye.
- White chocolate is not really chocolate at all.
I hope I haven’t spoiled your holiday, but I felt it needed to be said. Now, here’s a little sappiness to dry your tears: serving others (especially with food) is how I like to show love, and if you are the same way, this cake should do the trick! There are technically three recipes in this post. One is for the cake itself, another for homemade cream cheese frosting, and the third for white-chocolate dipped strawberries. The product of this post has been one of the most popular and recreated dishes on the blog so I had to revisit it and update the pictures for y’all. My photography skills have come a loooong way in two years so it’s only right that I give this cake the representation that it deserves. It’s a real stunner and my more rookie photos didn’t do it justice. I’ve also got a tutorial on making your own fancy-looking chocolate-covered berry gifts for V-Day this year that you can check out here.
I hope y’all continue loving and making this cake for yourselves and would love to see your renditions! If you share them on social media, tag me @dashofjazzblog so I can show you some love. Thanks for reading!
