RED VELVET CAKE Hello, Beautiful! Sometimes being bad is really very good…and with this cake, on a special Valentine’s Day (with someone or alone!) it’s even better.

A Holiday beauty!

CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT CAKE ROLL Chocolate and cake in the same dessert is wonderful.  Add in some cool, wintery peppermint-laced cream filling and let’s just swoon and get it over with, shall we?!

35-Second Lemon Cake in a cup…
