I think for a lot of bakers, holidays are about the sweets – I know for me, I’m eager to find any thinly veiled excuse to bake for my friends and family. This year, I’m already prepared: with Valentine’s Day cards already bought and ready to be sent, all I need are some lovely, sinful, over the top chocolate concoctions to go with them.
This bundt cake came from wanting to pair the Red Velvet M&Ms with something just as luscious and chocolatey. And I think it was most definitely a chocolatey success, perfect for the most indulgent time of year!
