“Not too dissimilar from Red Velvet Cake, this beauty would be a wonderful dessert for St. Patrick's Day or Christmas Day! It is a beautiful green treat set off by your favorite cream cheese frosting. It would do either of the saints, Patrick or Nicholas, proud! Note that the food coloring can be adjusted, lighter or darker, to suit your eye by using more or less food coloring.”
