We celebrated my uncle’s birthday last weekend. He requested a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.
I am not one to disappoint.
I’d never made (or even eaten) red velvet before.
The recipe I used called for 2 TABLESPOONS of red food coloring, which I didn’t realize when I was at the store collecting the ingredients so I bought the 4-pack of little food coloring squeeze bottles.
I had to use the entire bottle of red food coloring… it wasn’t even a single tablespoon!
I think it turned out pretty good, even if it’s not as red as it was supposed to be.
