Red Velvet Cake

     Red Velvet Cake is the perfect Valentines mascot for love.  Do we know how to celebrate at this house, or what! (btw, who decided chocolate with a slight red hue is more desirable!?...that one may even stump google)  Anyhoo, not only is this fun and delicious, each of these 8 pieces are only 195 calories, 6g net carbs and 11g protein.  If you are looking to impress your Sweetheart this year, surprise them with Red Velvet Cake (btw, who decided two layers were better than one!?...I'm just grateful for more bites of cream cheese frosting)!

Ingredients for 8 servings~
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted
3/4 cup baked mashed Sweet Potato
