and not get it anywhere is it the same as white wine vinegar????
(sorry if this post is in the wrong section my threads ALWAYS get moved lol)
No white vinegar is not the same as white wine vinegar. What are you using it for?
I checked out substitutions and found this: (Can you get apple cider vinegar?)
VINEGAR, white 1/4 cup (60 ml) =1/4 cup (60 ml) apple cider vinegar + 1/3 cup (80 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice

its for red velvet cup cakes I tried two super markets and they only had the brown stuff I made them with the WWV and I did get the chemical reaction but they aint red lol think I should just give up with them!
Tea42 thanks I may give that a try if I decide I can face making them again
try red wine vinegar. It's what the girls on D.C. cupcakes says they use in their red velvet. They gave out that on their 1st show. Don't know any more of their tips because I couldn't stand to watch it again.
Regular white vinegar is usually around the mayonaise in large bottles. You might also check the cleaning supplies area of your super market. I'm not sure waht would be more common in Scotland. I love the idea of the red wine vinegar for red velvet. Smart girls!
To get a true red it takes a whole lot of food coloring...just tell everyone you made pink velvet cupcakes
yes, the bright red color from red velvet cake that people make now is from food color, it used to be from a chemical reaction but not nearly as bright as you would see people selling now. I use regular white vinegar and add about 2 tbsp red food color per batch of batter... but I did see the DC cupcakes episode about them using red wine vinegar....I'll test it out one day to see if it makes a difference in taste. HTH
I will try the RWV that seems t0 add up!! I will also but the non natural colour and try them one last time lol. The ones I made last night did taste lovely tho!
Everybody is doing velvet in all different colors anyway.
oh they are lovely!!
Malt vinegar is fine - it adds to the depth of flavour !
