Strawberry Red Velvet and Vanilla Checkerboard Cake

Nowadays, I love to try my hands at different cake decorating techniques, like today's strawberry red velvet and vanilla checkerboard cake . I love how fun it was to make, and it was my first time making a red velvet cake!

Pink Champagne Jello Recipe

Pink Champagne Jello Recipe

As part of my Valentine's Dinner party menu that I shared in my previous post ( here ) ; I'm serving pink champagne jello with red berries and cream . Something about jello that evokes 'fun', don't you think? Maybe it's because it's a dessert we associate with kids, and therefore takes us back to our childhood days.  But for a grown-up update on this favorite classic, I added pink champagne and red berries. Which makes a super tasty, not to mention pretty in pink dessert for Valentine's Day ! :)
