Eat! Kitchen Treasures: White Godiva Martini Cake, I Think It’s Love

8 Feb

There was a time that I thought there was nothing better than Godiva Chocolate.  Well the folks at Godiva proved me wrong by rolling out their line of Godiva Chocolate Liqueurs that could be dangerous, in a good way, in the hands of any skilled drink mixer or baker.

Tracy from New York proved just how deliciously dangerous she could get with Godiva Liqueur  with this remix of the red velvet cake.  The cake is adorned by a fluffy Godiva White Chocolate liqueur infused filling and frosting that is delish! Serving this cake up in martini glasses is sure to be the buzz of any par-tay!

Without further adieu, Behold!
