In 41 years of life I had never tasted red Velvet cake until someone handed me a RV cupcake last week. I am not a sweets person at all, but was excited to know what the hype was about. to give you a reference of my dessert likes, I usually go with Pecan Pie or Cheesecake if I'm getting a cake/pie type desert. Ironically, while I'm not a cupcake lover, my junk food love is the orange Hostess cupcakes.
Anyway, I was pretty psyched. The cake was extremely moist, but I found the flavor to be odd. I could tell what was paired with the chocolate to make this flavor, but I found it just off. Then there was the butter cream icing. So sweet, it overpowered the less sweet chocolate cake. All in all, I would have to say it was pretty wretched. Don't think I'll be exploring any more varieties of this cake. What is the allure? I know people that go nuts for this cake.
