red velvet

I had been having a craving for red velvet cake (yes I know, what an odd craving!) for the longest time ever, and finally, last Thursday (16 February), I decided to go and get myself a slice from Coffee Bean after work.

Told colleague D about wanting to buy a slice of red velvet cake, and she lent me her Coffee Bean stored value card readily, so I said I’d get her a piece. Then after that, another colleague YL heard us talking about it, and after googling the cake, said she also wanted to try it as well. :)

So I stopped by the Coffee Bean outlet near my place, got three slices of red velvet and popped them into the fridge once I got home. The next morning, I took them on a 45-minute journey (walk, MRT, walk) to work.

Finally, I burst into the office and announced to D and YL that their cakes had arrived!

And when I opened the boxes, what a sight greeted me! Alas! Due to all the bumping and thumping, the icing on the cakes had either smashed or fell off in several places……!

All bashed up!!!

Luckily, D and YL were pretty gracious about it. Nevertheless, I took the cui-est piece. :D

And turned out that all three of us skipped breakfast so that we could enjoy our cake! And I did so immensely. The icing was sweet with a hint of sourness and the cake was moreish. Not enough icing, though! (And I think the red velvet from Food For Thought is slightly better, though!)

And the best part? D said it was her treat!!! :D

    Haha, crushed or not, Coffee Bean makes the best red velvet cake – authentic and the cream cheese is to die for! I’d eat the cake smashed, turned over, or destroyed during travel! LOL!

    Oh, and Food for Thought’s red velvet isn’t authentic, they use cherry vanilla cake, which is NOT really red velvet cake. ;)
