I am not getting ready for Valentine’s Day, but tomorrow is my mother’s day! So it seems fitting that I share my favorite Red Velvet Cheesecake selection with you on this day. 🙂
Bake red velvet cake, cut in two layers, then stack the 2 layers on top of one another, alternating red velvet cake and cheesecake, and then frost the whole thing with cream cheese icing. Absolutely divine!
