meet me on the rooftop: the sweet treats

When deciding what to make for a romantic rendezvous on the roof top, I thought cake truffles would be perfect since they're both decadent and delicate. 

So far, this is my favorite red velvet cake recipe:

1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 T cocoa powder
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 T red food coloring
1/2 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp vanilla

Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.  In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, buttermilk, egg, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla.  While mixing at medium speed, gradually add dry mixture to wet mixture until just combined.  Fill cupcake liners.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, or until an insterted toothpick comes out clean. 

We also made raspberry linzer cookies and mini chocolate cakes for which these links were helpful. 

I hope everyone is having a beautiful Valentine's Day eve!

-XO, Anna
