Yesterday I spent time baking a Red Velvet Cake, something that has become a Christmas tradition. I baked it for a luncheon today with fellow retired teachers from my school. The first picture shows the cake after it was finished yesterday. The second picture shows it after it was cut today for serving.
Incidentally, this cake has been awarded a blue ribbon at our local fair for the past two years!:-)
There were nine of us who gathered at a fellow retired teachers home. We had a lovely time together. It was definitely one of the bright spots in the season.
