I've always wanted to know how red velvet cake tasted like but quite frankly I never had the guts to try it out until now. I came across many recipes some adding bottles of red food colouring to the batter...Frankly that scared the ...out of me. Food coloring in vast amounts must be toxic!Or perhaps eating the cake might turn ur tongue red?
Well I made these cupcakes from a recipe that required the use of 2 tbsps of food colouring. They turned out pretty red once i sliced them in half they were moist and looked like velvet.
Taste wise they remind me of a cocoa cake.I think they'll make beautiful xmas cupcakes with ribbons tied around the paper cups.
