Description

 Origin of this cake and Miss Sallie’s little history.

It seems that lots of people like the red velvet cake. I think if i where a child again this would be my favourite cake. And while this cake is also new to me, i do love the cake. I am not so sure about the cream cheese frosting though. Apparently in the 1900’s, the red velvet cake was created by a red food dye producer, from America. This was a way to sell more red food colouring, as if children need more encouragement to act crazy! The red velvet cake has also been known to be made with beetroot juice to achieve the red colour. The type of cocoa powder can influence the colour of the cake.

Traditionally, red velvet cake is iced with a French-style butter roux icing(see note below). This was known as ermine icing, this icing is very light and fluffy, but time-consuming to prepare. Cream cheese frosting and buttercream frosting are variations, which increased in popularity over the later 20th century.

A roux is a sauce started with flour and butter or water and prepared in a saucepan.

Buttercream frosting is a mix of butter and icing sugar.

Description of our Red Velvet Cake

We follow the traditional style of the actual red velvet cake and include all the normal ingredients along with the use of buttermilk and bicarb to achieve and moist soft texture and red food colouring to achieve the slight red colour of this cake. Having cooked 3 discs of cake, each are 8inch in diametre. We make and use the more modren creamcheese frosting rather than the ermine icing. The cakes are sandwiched together with the frosting and the top is also finished with the creamcheese. You can choose the topping decoration from sprinkles, cake crumb, dried flowers or edible glitter.
