I baked a cake for my niece Katie's birthday yesterday even though she criticizes my art. I love her anyway. I wanted the cake to look like the one pictured above, but I didn't take into consideration how much my stove tilts. The final product ended up looking more like the birthday cake Hagrid brought to Harry in the first Harry Potter movie.

Did you know that what distinguishes a red velvet cake from an ordinary chocolate cake is the addition of an entire bottle of red food coloring? Neither did I. The knowledge creeps me out a little and I don't know why. It didn't, however, stop me from eating a nice big slice. I'm brave that way.
