I had no actual reason for making this cake except that I was really in a Halloween mood and wanted to make it!
In fact, I baked it up the day before I went out of town and the whole thing went over to the neighbor’s house.
I played around with a red velvet cake recipe, since I wasn’t impressed last time I tried one. I was also sure to use a “no taste” red food dye, which yielded much more pleasing insults, in my humble opinion.
This was my very first time making ganache, so it’s a little gloppy – I think I let it set just a hair too long before pouring, but the results were still delicious!
