The Red Velvet cake; a delicious chocolate cake that due its colour and texture, certainly lives up to its name! Contrasting perfectly with the filling is a soft, rich and fluffy white frosting that provides much of the cake’s flavour. Traditionally prepared as a layer cake, topped with cream cheese or icing, due it’s fiery red colouring it is especially popular during Christmas or St. Valentine’s Day.
The first identifiable record of this type of cake existing was in 1959, in the United States – the term ‘Red Velvet Cake’ being coined a year later. Alternatively, it is also known as ‘Red Waldorf Cake’, ‘Red Carpet Cake’ and ‘Flame Cake’. Whatever you wish to call it and whatever you want to have as a decoration; a red velvet cake simply offers a wholesome, tasty treat for all who have a slice!
