Red Velvet

There is a big joke about red velvet cake in our family. About 7 or 8 years ago, for my PopPop's birthday, my Mimi made him a red velvet cake. When we arrived for the celebration, all she could talk about was how while making the cake, everything was red. She said she was covered in it from mixing the cake and the sink was red, everything was RED. We have joked about it for years and are constantly begging her to make another. She only made him that cake because he went to the store and that's the mix he came home with.

Since this incident, we have been obsessed with red velvet cake. We have made several ourselves and seek out items that are said to be flavored with red velvet cake. Most recently, we have had a red velvet cake cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory and it was incredible! Sonic had a red velvet cake milkshake that we never got around to trying, but every time we went to Happy Hour, we wanted to get it. Today after lunch, we went to a little frozen yogurt shop for dessert. They had some crazy flavors and there was even a red velvet frozen yogurt. I had to have it. I mixed it with cheesecake yogurt and then put on some graham cracker crumbs. Brady loved it as well and probably ate a good 1/4 of my cup. It tasted just like I was eating a slice of red velvet cake. We are excited that this particular yogurt shop will be supplying yogurt and smoothies at the Bosch company picnic in September.
