A quick look at cake history will tell you that red velvet cakes have been a worshipped top pick for quite a long time; however, in spite of its speciality, the red velvet cake has been at the sweet focus of plenty of controversies and unfounded incriminations - from it being a fraud chocolate cake, to it being a formula for revenge - red velvet cake has dealt with it all.
In actuality, the foundations of red velvet cake date back to the thirteenth-century Victorian period where cocoa was viewed as an extravagance, reserved distinctly for the creme de la creme of cakes - and served only to the most notable individuals at the fanciest gatherings and parties of that society.
Although today's less authentic red velvet cakes are an invention of chocolate and food colouring, real red velvet cakes were not as brightly coloured as today's delicacy. Red Velvet cakes were given their notorious name because of their close likeness to a velvety red carpet, particularly on account of their smooth and delicate texture. The famous shade of the red velvet, however, at first originated from a formula botch that brought about a chemical response between buttermilk and vinegar - and the rest was history. This luxurious delicacy soon made its way through the most prestigious parties, pop-culture trends, celebrity favourites, and finally today, our homes as a household favourite.
