It’s Friday afternoon, yippee. I am sure you are more than looking forward to your weekend beginning and as it’s Friday afternoon my thoughts as always are turning to food.
Earlier in the week I featured a red and ivory bridal inspiration board which was actually inspired by a certain Angelina Jolie in her beautiful ivory silk Atelier Versace dress, with it’s contemporary flash of red. Such a gorgeous dress and a gorgeous board, as I am after all having a love affair with red right now.
So rather predictably I wondered how you could translate this colour palette to food, specifically party food. And then I found this amazing Red Velvet Heart Cake and I wondered no longer.
I just adore this cake, it’s one of those that makes me want to lick the screen, I can almost taste the creamy buttery topping, no doubt you would end up with a little bit of a red tongue with all that colouring too, but heck when it looks this good, who cares?

This cake is not for the faint of heart as it does require some baking skills and a lot of patience. But if you are feeling confident then go on give it a go, I dare you. You’ll find the tutorial here on I Am Baker.

To complement the naughty sweetness of the cake I have paired it with a rather gorgeous Raspberry Truffle Cocktail which has both a creamy texture as well as a delicious white chocolatey flavour, balanced by the tarty flavour of the raspberries. You can find the recipe here.
I am thinking this could be a good pairing for a certain little event coming up.
You know the one beginning with V.
I mean Valentines of course!!!!
Happy Friday peeps and do let me know your delicious recipes too.
