Bella and Edward's Red Velvet Cake
My Twilight Obsessed Friend (TOF) Margaret threw a much-anticipated party for the release of Breaking Dawn, the last book following the story of Bella Swan and her undead paramour, Edward Cullen. In honor of the Twilight Saga, I decided to make a red velvet cake for the occasion. After searching every cookbook in my house for a good recipe and coming up empty-handed, I turned to the internet, the Food Network website to be exact. I decided on Paula Deen's recipe for her Grandma Paul's Red Velvet Cake because it had the most cocoa powder in it. It also had the most red food coloring in it--2 whole bottles! Yikes!
Does that look like blood or what?

Finished off with semisweet chocolate curls and raspberries from my very own backyard
