If you are contemplating what kind of a sweet treat to make for Valentines day, I have an IDEA!
Behold the grapefruit cake! I enjoyed every bite of this delectable cake lusciousness last week at You Say Tomato. It's simple combination of unexpected flavors made my heart skip a few beats. I don't have the recipe but here is how I am planning to make my version of it.
One white cake with a crumb texture somewhere between a pound cake and a layer cake. Slice the layers in half and frost with a buttercream frosting to which you have added a macerated grapefruit segment for the flavor and color. Gently place grapefruit segments between the layers. Slather some more frosting on the top and if it runs down the sides that is fine too. You can serve a conversation heart or two on the side if you want to "valentine it up" a little bit.
I told my sweetie about it and he did not seem excited. I can't help it if he has no taste when it comes to cake. I will buy him a Hershey bar. I think he will find that an acceptable substitute.
