The Red Velvet Cake and its original recipe are well known in the United States from New York City’s famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which has dubbed the confection Waldorf Astoria cake. For a dessert that is quite popular in the South, it's interesting that its roots are from New York City.
A white chocolate dome, decorated with a white and red chocolate mirror glaze, covers a rich, silky red velvet mousse. Nestled inside the red velvet mousse is a lighter-than-clouds cream cheese mousse. This decadent dessert is finished off with a chocolate shortbread cookie base.
This Waldorf Astoria-inspired dessert is delightful and paired with the sweet adventure you’ll find in The Baker’s Man, this is a perfect treat!
