Notes

This ruby-red cake is the signature dessert of a really good friend of mine, she gave me permission to share it with you. This cake is beautiful and with its lovely cream cheese frosting it is always a hit. The cake is moist with a buttery chocolate taste. I hope it will become one of your favorites.

A dash of local for every season
