How To Bribe Your Friends With Cake To Get Them To Watch Your Cat

[Click to enlarge.]


You must believe me, this cake is truly a powerful cake. It’s the best Red Velvet I’ve had, and I’ve had quite a few. I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen (a new favorite site; beautiful, with great recipes) and I fully support Deb’s icing calculations. It seems like too little when you make it, but it’s just enough to ice the cake and the end result is an icing/cake ratio that’s perfectly balanced. So if you need to bribe some catsitters, or you just want to treat yourself to a Southern delicacy, do it Red Velvet style. You won’t regret it.

Here we go on a full comic adventure, thanks again to Comic Life–my new favorite software. Don’t forget to click to make larger! (And, this recipe comes from The Gourmet Cookbook—so it’s probably on Epicurious. They came out pretty tasty and I think they’re pretty healthy too: there’s no fat in them. Just almond paste, sugar, salt, honey, and an egg white.) Enjoy!
