I'm not a person that ever forgets to eat. Eating and plans for further eating are usually at the very forefront of my mind. In fact I have a hard time understanding people that don't remember to feed themselves. But today was completely crazy and between everything I was doing, you guessed it, no food.
Fortunately my friend CupcakeGirl is awesome and amazing and she brought me not only a latte from Dean & Deluca, but also a Red Velvet cupcake. Ohhhh, red velvet.
At around 8:00pm I finally gave in (and dug in) to my cupcake. Let's just say, I will never leave one of these cupcakes lonely on my desk again. The cake was moist and had a nice hint of cocoa. The frosting was good and creamy, if a little rich. In face my only criticism is that it could use a little less frosting. (I can't believe I just suggested something--anything--could use less frosting).
In a couple of hours I'm headed for a business trip out west. Travel food reviews when I return!
