Okay gotta correct this statement
well in the south red velvet is meant to have a cream cheese and pecan filling, no one would eat it any other way
I beg to differ - I'm a southern girl and I will never eat RVC if it has cream cheese frosting on it
cream cheese frosting is fine on carrot cake, it's fine on spice cake...but don't mess up a lovely RVC w/ cream cheese
I'm very passionate about RVC...it began at a young age, I was about 7 years old, and one of my relatives made an RVC... well I took a bite, and loudly announced "This is nasty it tastes like rotten cheese, it's not like Gramma's"
Needless to say momma told me I hurt her feelings and made me write an apology note- which I discovered that she saved (she gave it to me this past Christmas) Honest truth this is what I wrote at the age of 7 -
"Dear Aunt _______
Momma said I hurt your feelings, I hope they get better. I'm sorry you messed up your cake. Gramma's cake is yummy, you should ask her to teach you to make it like she makes it, then yours will be yummy like hers.
P.S. do you still like me
P.P.S. I don't know why I need to say I'm sorry, I was telling the truth your cake was gross.
After that little incident, momma made me write the "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" about 50 times...didn't really work in the area of RVC - RVC is the one subject that will get me fired up - either make it the right way, or don't make it at all.
