Red Velvet Mash Up

red velvet raspnerry gelato dolci gelati cream cheese pound cake whipped cream

Last week the lovely owners of DC-based Dolci Gelati kindly gave me some samples of one of their new creations, raspberry red velvet gelato. Immediately, I knew what would go perfectly with these flavors so I made a cheese pound cake to use as a base. I ended up with classic red velvet flavors (there’s real pieces of cake in the gelato!) plus a little raspberry tartness too. Oh, and of course I had to add a little homemade whipped cream to the mix.

I found this cream cheese pound cake recipe from Smitten Kitchen and it blew me away. It was so moist and rich. Who knew pound cake could be that good? My only regret is that I didn’t save myself more! (It got devoured within an hour at work.) I will definitely be making this again this summer – adding some fresh farmer’s market berries and maybe adding some of Dolci Gelati’s mascarpone gelato on the side! A perfect dessert to share with friends al fresco.

You can find Dolci Gelati and all of their amazing flavors around DC at Nat’s Park, the National Zoo, and Taylor Gourmet (my personal preference because it also comes with an awesome sandwich).

    Real pieces of red velvet in the gelato?! Sounds absolutely incredible, and a perfect complement to your pound cake! That wouldn’t have survived beyond my work day, either.
