Red Velvet Cake Tasting

This morning I whipped up this Red Velvet Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting for a wedding cake tasting.

I also just happened to see this great link on Cupcake Takes the Cake, that ponders the question, why is Red Velvet such a popular flavor? I think that the quote from the little boy at Golden Belt last month says it pretty well, "The red stuff tastes just like cake but the white stuff on top [White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting] is awesome!"


  1. I think its popularity is so interesting too! It's our best seller at Cupcake in Charleston, and most people don't even know what it is or why it's red!

  2. I think its the cream cheese frosting too! I just wish you could color it red without all that food coloring - I heard about using beets... but I've also heard it can turn it an awful looking brown too.
