One of my favorite things about blogging is coming up with cheesy post titles. I love it! 🙂 Another one of my favorite things is looking at the endless supply of food photos that the interweb has to offer. This Wednesday I’m sharing some photos of Red Velvet baked goods. Don’t you think it’s amazing, that in an era where everything is all about natural ingredients, Red Velvet still manages to be so popular? What is it with RV? I certainly do love it.
Regarding the origins of our brightly coloured subject, no one seems quite sure exactly how and where it came about. General consensus is that the first Red Velvet Cakes were red quite by accident – the acidic cocoa powder would react with the alkaline buttermilk which resulted in a reddish hue. These days, bakers add food colouring to produce the dazzling red cake. And the trend has extended itself to a number of other baked goods, not just cake. It seems there is a demand for Red Velvet everything.
