I am from the south, I guess maybe not the “deep south” as I am from Florida and mostly have lived in big cities. However, after moving to Tallahassee, I feel like this is the only time I have really lived in the south. I discovered the love people have for red velvet here. I also found a lot of love for this classic and decided I would give it a little update. Please enjoy!!
