First, I don’t crave sweets. I am a salt loving girl through and through. But I do find it hard to pass by Sprinkles and not pop in and buy a red velvet cupcake. I was going through some of my photos and found this one. (I wish I had just taken it just a second ago and that big glob of icing was in front of me) Anyway, I got to thinking – is red velvet colored vanilla or chocolate so I did a little research. Red velvet is actually a light cocoa cake with either food coloring or beetroot added. I don’t remember red velvet cake growing up and found that there was a resurgence in the popularity of this cake because of the film Steel Magnolias (1989). During the wedding scene, the groom’s cake is a red velvet, made in the shape of an armadillo. (Red velvet wedding cake is a southern tradition) So if you were wondering if I exercised “portion control” (where you just eat half of everything)…not this time: 😉
