One of the things I wanted to taste when I traveled to the US this time was a piece of Red Velvet Cake. This was of course because I had never tasted one ever in my life, I would have liked to but I do not know of any bakery or store that sell any kind of Red Velvet Cake in Sweden. And although I waited until one of my last days in the US to try some, I finally bought a Red Velvet Cupcake.
This is the Red Velvet Cupcake I bought, so pretty.
And even more tasty! :p
Now the red part did not really taste that much of anything I must say, instead it was the frosting which made the whole thing insanely delicious. I also bought a box of Red Velvet Cake Mix as a present to my sister so she could try, and bake, some back home in Sweden. And a few days ago she made the cake from the cake mix.
This is how it turned out, Red Velvet Cake made from cake mix.
Although it was tasty I must say that it did look a bit gruesome, like a bloody cake. Lol. But of course the color was one of the reasons I wanted to try this cake, it is very weirdly intruiging.
The cake basically tasted the same as the Red Velvet Cupcake, and once again it was the frosting that made the cake so yummy. Which makes me wonder what the red stuff actually is? And why it is called Red Velvet Cake? Hm? Anyway, I have now tasted some (twice) and I truly hope I get a chance to try more in the future. :p
