I have to make cake balls and i love the taste of red velvet but i want the cake balls to be pink- i use boxed cake mix for cake balls and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on making it pink?

AYou can't. It has cocoa powder in, and way to much coloring. If you want to make your own, get white cake mix, use butter milk, and a couple drops of chocolate emulsion, and your pink.

When I used it, I cut it with a whole box of white, and still got a very vivid, intense red cake.

If you use cocoa, you would have to use light colored cocoa, and just a pinch or two, or you'll turn it brown. If you use an emulsion, you can add the flavor without the color.

would a small amount of cocoa still make it taste like red velvet?
