Lately I’ve been infatuated with Red Velvet cake – and it has manifested itself in cupcakes, cakes, ice cream, and other treats. Not too long ago, I found Red Velvet Cheesecake at Co-op, and of course, I had to pick up some for a treat!
Of course, because I’m a klutz, I bagged the cake myself. (And tipped it on it’s side..) then it tipped again when serving it… So – the photo isn’t fantastic.
But, looks aren’t everything (so say the pretty boys and girls…) and taste is what we’re really after here! This one had an icing-sugar-heavy style topping (which I found way too sweet) and the cheesecake itself was kind of crumbly and dry. It was as though instead of adding the flavours and colour of Red Velvet – they added proper cake batter inside an otherwise plain cheesecake.
It was tasty, but didn’t really have the red velvet flavour that I was after… plus the texture was kind of.. well, not ideal.
