Last week my oldest (you know, the one who recently moved out of home, sniff) asked me to make a birthday cake for his girlfriend.
Of course I obliged.
The only criteria he asked for was that it was red velvet with vanilla icing, and Spider-Man themed ... apparently she loves Spider-Man.
I would love to share a fabulous red-velvet cake recipe with you, but things have been busy lately ... too busy. I didn't have time to experiment in the kitchen like I would normally do and don't have a tried and true recipe on hand for red velvet cake, so I made up a couple of boxes of cake mix, substituting the oil for apple sauce of course, and then made my own vanilla icing.
