red velvet cake
The Waldorf Astoria New York invented Red Velvet Cake (it was first created in its kitchen in the first half of the 20th century), so this is truly an original recipe!Red Velvet Cake is a decadent chocolate cake dyed a deep red then iced in a rich cream cheese and Mascarpone frosting. This treat uses beets as a colorant, preventing the cake from having the harsh, artificial taste that red food dyes often produce.Although many consider the Red Velvet Cake to be a Southern classic, it was actually created at The Waldorf Astoria New York. The recipe was kept secret until the chef received a letter from a guest asking how to make it.  In response, the chef sent the secret recipe along with a bill for $350. Feeling offended by the invoice, the guest shared the recipe with all of her friends and family members, which ultimately helped the cake grow in popularity and become one of the most sought-after bakery treats.

Red Velvet Cake
Who doesn't like winning an election? I sure was happy when viewers were asked to vote for a favorite recipe, because my Red Velvet Cake came in first! That's saying something when you consider the runners-up were hush puppies and waffles, which are two of my favorites. Hey, I'm a Southern girl, and the Southern part will always love her hush puppies, while the girl in me remembers waffles so fondly. People say this is a sexy cake (Clinton does, but he says that about everything except maybe boiled turnips). The color red no doubt has a lot to do with its sexy reputation: think Valentine's Day. This is a fun cake to make with kids, and I guarantee that after eating this cake, most kids will be happy to have learned that beets aren't yucky!
