Tomato Head’s red velvet cake

The picture quality is poor, but I knew this cupcake wasn’t going to live to see the morning light.

Tonight was First Friday in Market Square, so I rode my bike down to see the sights, but mostly for a cupcake. The Tomato Head is a really vegan-friendly resaurant in Market Square, with awesome salads and pizza, and among their various baked goods they always have one vegan cupcake option. I had never tried one before, so I got a red velvet cupcake with vanilla frosting to go and precariosly packed it into my basket so the frosting wouldn’t get smashed on the way home.

I’m not generally a huge fan of red velvet cake (neither red nor velvet are flavors! And food that color is just off-putting), but I enjoyed this cupcake. It could just be due to the fact that I’m a sweet fiend, but whatev’s. The cake was mildly chocolatey with a tiny bit of cherry flavor. Do all red velvet cakes have cherryness? The frosting was thick (in a good way) but it could have been smoother. I think I should try making red velvet cake myself and see if I like it better that way.

Not that I didn’t enjoy it.
