Red Velvet Valentines


Valentine's Day is TOMORROW, and as much as we love chocolates and roses, this year I'm opting for something a little more personal and original. This is a recipe from the super-luxe Miami restaurant Philippe for their signature Heart-Shaped Red Velvet cake recipe. Remember, calories don't count on V-Day. I promise. Check out their how-to below and eat your, umm, heart out!
