Im thinking of making a red velvet cake from the cake Dr. starting with a white cake mix and adding chocolate. My question is what color would it turn out if I didnt put so much red? I was thinking of maybe putting in a little or maybe putting in some pink and calling it pink velvet since i know that the color does not make much of a difference in taste. thanks
I tried this last night! I wanted a pink velvet, but with the cocoa, it can't really be pink- it was a burgundy color. I used 1/2 the called for red coloring. Perhaps if I'd used pink gel it would have been pinker, but really the cocoa makes it brown enough that I can't see getting it pink. I'd love to hear from folks who do this- I've heard of people doing green velvet for St Patty's and other colors as well. Do they just call it this but leave out the cocoa?
I've seen blue velvet and it was LOVELY! Christmas theme with silver dragees and white snowflake...
Did the blue velvet still have the cocoa in it?
I believe so, the baker followed her red velvet recipe but added blue instead of red. I have been looking for the pic, I'll let you know if I find it.
Thanks guys! I have a hard time putting that much color into the cake. just trying to get away with putting less color and calling it pink
