A slice of Red Velvet is perhaps the richest and most indulgent of the Lady M cakes. It shows the elegance featured in all their other creations, only this one is a bit wicked, darker and intense. The cocoa sponge is plenty moist with a dense, chocolatey crumb. Three layers, each separated with cream cheese and fresh cream frosting. As silky smooth as you'd imagine. So we'll place our order, one Mille-Crepe, Banana Mille Feuille, Mont Blanc, and a slice or two of Red Velvet. Who said we can't have cake for lunch?
