:bulletred: A bit of information for this delicious treat - In recent years, red velvet cake and red velvet cupcakes have become increasingly popular in the US and many European countries. A resurgence in the popularity of this cake is attributed by some to the 1989 film Steel Magnolias. In Canada, the cake was a well-known dessert in the restaurants and bakeries of the Eaton's department store chain in the 1940s and 1950s.

:bulletred: The reddish color is often enhanced by adding beetroot or red food coloring. My kids' loves red velvet cakes and cupcakes. They love my cream cheese frosting i think...;p

Love these cupcakes! They remind me of the tasty Waldorf Astoria Red Velvet Cake. Many years ago a customer asked the chef for the recipe and later she was supposedly billed $1, 000. for it.  She was so irate that she then published the recipe which I obtained in about 196!!!

Your sister should make you a red velvet cake if you ever get married! You can't be making the cake for your own wedding...
