So I’m fairly new to baking, in general, but I’ve had some success with a Red Velvet Cake. Everyone really enjoyed it and I’d like to make another for a work party. However… I was wondering if there would be any negative side effect to leaving out the red coloring. I have nothing against it! I think it’s beautiful, I just would rather have a more neutral color with this particular cake.
Anyone know if the red coloring is essential? I know it wouldn’t technically be a real Red Velvet Cake, but I’m okay with that.
Also… what’s the big deal with Red Velvet Cakes? People seem to get really uppity about it. I’ve read so many articles that just completely rip apart the very idea of adding red coloring to a cake.
