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

It is evident that the red velvet cake is widely favored by many. If I were to relive my childhood, undoubtedly, this would be my cake of choice. Even though this cake is relatively new to me, I have developed a genuine affection for it. However, I must admit that I have some reservations about the cream cheese frosting. Interestingly, in the 1900s, the red velvet cake was introduced by a red food dye producer from America. This clever marketing tactic aimed to boost the sales of red food coloring, as if children needed any more encouragement to be wild! Furthermore, it is worth noting that beetroot juice has been utilized as an alternative method to achieve the vibrant red hue of this cake. The type of cocoa powder used also plays a role in determining the cake’s colour.

Traditionally, red velvet cake is adorned with a French-style butter roux icing, also known as ermine icing. This particular icing is exceptionally light and fluffy, albeit quite laborious to prepare. However, over the course of the 20th century, cream cheese frosting and buttercream frosting have gained immense popularity as alternative options. On the other hand, buttercream frosting is a delightful combination of butter and icing sugar.

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 a moist soft texture and red food colouring to achieve the slight red colour of this cake. Having cooked three discs of cake, each eight inches in diameter, we make and use the more modern cream cheese frosting rather than the ermine icing. The cakes are sandwiched together with the frosting, and the top is also finished with the cream cheese. You can choose the topping decoration from sprinkles, cake crumb, dried flowers, or edible glitter.
