I am suppose to make a Auburn grooms cake and the groom requested that the cake part be navy blue. He wanted red velvet(but blue instead of red). I tried this but the cake had a green tint to it. He wants a different flavored cake instead of white because the brides cake will be the white cake. Any suggestions as to what type of cake I could add blue coloring to and it look blue. I tried in in the chocolate but it looked black.Thanks!
I think white cake is the best one to use to color. You can always flavor it with different flavors so it doesn't taste like the wedding cake. The lorann flavors have a lot of different flavors you can add to white. I wonder if using the blue liquid cake dye would make your cake a darker blue than the gels or even use a powdered coloring to get that deep blue.
Just a thought: what about a blueberry cake?
what kind of coloring did you use? I use americolor gels and they color my red velvet recipe great.
Blue Velvet Cake!
I recently had a wedding cake where the bride wanted one tier to be blue. Each tier was a different flavor. I made that tier a blue velvet cake. It turned out with a great blue color and tasted good too!
