Red Velvet Cheesecake Like This Is Fancy Enough For Royalty

After dinner, I served this to him, the kids, and myself. It was even better tasting than what it looked, if that’s possible. My husband even asked for a second piece, and he doesn’t even like sweet stuff usually. I told him since it was his birthday, I could allow him to have an extra piece. He just looked at me with a half-smile and passed his plate down. That was the only thing I could say, or the kids would have all wanted more too! We save the rest for the following day after dinner and it was just as scrumptious.
