History of the red velvet cake
Dating back all the way to the Victorian era, the striking yet delicious red velvet cake has definitely survived the test of time and even thrived in modern days. Contrary to popular belief, the colour of this dessert didn’t actually start off as the famous vibrant red, but rather a reddish-brown. These creations were known as the luxurious ‘velvet cakes’, a decadent dessert that had a finer and smoother texture than other cakes of the time.
When the red velvet cake finally emerged after some experimenting, it was immediately elevated to the area of luxurious cakes due to its design and bright red colour. You will only ever see extravagant versions of this dessert like happy birthday red velvet cakes, red velvet wedding cake, etc. In other words, it is safe to say that you must be pretty special to be on the receiving end of these red velvet cakes in the earlier days.
Fast forward to modern days and red velvet cakes are now more easily available across various bakeries near you. Often made with cocoa powder, cream cheese and buttermilk, these luscious desserts now come in a myriad of cool new flavours and designs including red velvet cupcakes, southern red velvet cake and Nutella red velvet cake. The best part? Each design is even given its own unique decoration — making the ‘wow’ factor that much more prominent.
