A week or two ago, I saw a blog about "chocolate covered strawberries". These strawberries were actually red velvet cake bites shaped like strawberries and the dipped in chocolate. After seeing them I knew I had to make some for the event.
Instead of red velvet cake, I made a strawberry cake. I have yet to have success with a red velvet recipe, and I didn't feel this was the time to try. So after I shaped the "strawberries", I dipped the tops into red candy melts.
