What Is Red Velvet Cake?

Lately I got so much orders for my Red Velvet Cakes and Cupcakes. It is funny how people are so fascinated with Red Velvet. Is it because of the name? Or its color? Or the vague taste of Red Velvet itself which is neither chocolate nor butter? Or simply because of its popularity?

Generally my customers love the texture, the moist factor and the interesting taste of my Red Velvet. The deep red velvety color does play such an important role as when the eyes see it so appertising, the vague sweet taste of the cake with the slight sour taste from the cream cheese frosting really make up for the whole combination. The whole cake really came out like a winner.

The funny thing is whenever my customers, friends or family asked me what is the taste of Red Velvet, I often have to explain what I put in the cake instead. Well I suppose I could say that Red Velvet is a taste combination of chocolate, sweet and a little bit of sour from the cream cheese and also the white vinegar.

Below are some of my Red Velvet Cakes from recent orders.





 These were a special order for a wedding with a theme of peach color. So I decided to decorate the red velvet cupcakes with simple peach fondant daisies.
