When you think of Neiman Marcus, you probably imagine dresses, coats, bags, and jewels. But, for me, Neiman Marcus conjures images of decadent cakes and ooey-gooey melt-in-your-mouth cookies. The sinful sweets at the in-store cafes are delightfully delicious and as pleasing to the eye as the designer sale rack a few floors down. And I prefer to splurge in calories rather than dollars.
But unfortunately (and fortunately!) for me, there’s no Neiman Marcus close by, so I rarely get to sink my fork into a slice of their rich and heavenly red velvet cake. It’s by far the best red-velvet I’ve ever tasted (and I consider myself a connoisseur!) With the holidays here, I can rationalize ordering a whole red velvet cake from Neimans. With its festive colors, subtle chocolate taste, and creamy sweet frosting, it’s the perfect dessert for the holiday table. It serves eight … But if I’m around, it serves two at best.
P.S. Neiman Marcus is also famous for their chocolate chip cookies. And their exclusive mix makes a great little giftie for only $24! … I say embrace a few extra holiday pounds.
