So here’s the final product. It’s red velvet cake with a peppermint glaze. I wondered about that combination, since cream cheese frosting is practically essential to a red velvet cake. But…I didn’t have cream cheese and wasn’t sure how that would do in a glaze anyway, so since red velvet is basically just chocolate cake, I figured peppermint ought to go. And it does!
