what do they say? a moment on the lips, on lifetime on the hips?

when it comes to red velvet , it doesn’t matter…

it makes my knees shake, & my heart race.

pretty sure i could eat red velvet all day & night.

especially red velvet whoopie pies.

the combination of red velvet & mounds of delicious cream cheese frosting?

me oh my, what’s not to love?
