What is the history of red velvet cake?
The red velvet cake is a traditional Southern dessert with an interesting backstory. While the exact origin of the cake is unknown, it is thought to have originated in the United States in the early 1900s. It is said to have been created by a chef at New York City’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The cake’s signature color is thought to have resulted from adding beetroot or a red food dye extract to the cake batter. This gave the cake a deep red color and a distinct flavor. Red velvet cake has become popular for special occasions such as birthdays, holidays, and weddings. It is also frequently served with a traditional cream cheese frosting, which complements the cake’s distinct flavor.
