Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream – Valentine’s Day

Loving red velvet cake seems to be the cult following of the dessert world. If you’re someone who loves red velvet – you LOVE red velvet. And if that fits your description, this recipe is for you.

Valentine’s Day will always be one of my favorite holidays. I say this every year. Some call it a “Hallmark Holiday” but I think it’s a great day and opportunity to celebrate love in all it’s glory. Not just love for your partner but for everyone in your life. Your friends, your mom, your co worker that gets you through the week, whoever it is that comes to your mind when you think of love – love them extra that day.

You’ll hear me preach this every year so get used to it #sorrynotsorry.
