My Nana made the best Red Velvet Cake ever!! Now I don’t have my Nana, but I do still have her recipe and wanted to share it with you all so you could enjoy it!! I’m planning on making it soon so I can have it for desert, I will just have to portion it out because I’m sure I don’t want to know how many calories are in it!!
