Hi CC!
I'm wanting to make a really simple traditional red velvet cake tonight just for family and I remembered this picture from awhile back (don't know the original artist). I am wondering what the red stuff is in the middle of the cake? It almost looks like finely chopped pieces of the cake. I'm not familiar with it-does anyone else know? icon_smile.gif

looks like cake crumbs to me. Make a small cupcake also when making your cake and crumble that up.

Yup! It looks like cake crumbs to me too! If you want them crunchy, you can crumble the cup cake and toast it in the oven for a few minutes until it's toasty. You can use it fresh too if you so desired.

they're just cake crumbs. Either from a part of the cake you trimmed off, or an extra cupcake. Just rub the cake until it crumbles to get the size you desire.

I'm sure too that it is just cake crumbs. A fancy cupcake store in my area that was on Cupcake Wars recently sells Red Velvet cupcakes topped with Red Velvet cake crumbs & it looks just like that.

thanks everyone!
I've been wanting to do this for forever-it's nice to do a simple cake for dessert. Some times I forget that not every cake has to incorporate my 3 day tactical plan! rofl

You can always use the cake scraps from leveling. It does look delicious. *pokes screen with fork*

cakes are done and were delicious-a great way to start the fall season icon_smile.gif I pulsed the cake scraps from leveling in the food processor for a few seconds and it was good to go! Thanks every one
