imaprettylady asked: I have a vanilla cake mix and I was wondering if I add gel food coloring will it still work with the cake mix? Like will it affect the mix?
food coloring is not suppose to give it flavor. sometimes the red food coloring can give a bad flavor (after taste) to the mix so buying something like ‘no taste’ red food coloring from wilton helps a lot.
If used correctly (as your recipe says) you should be fine as far as ratios go. If you over do it it can affect your cake mix, but that goes for any ingredient you over do ratios on.

gale583 asked: Interesting post about Red Velvet! Reminded me of a problem I have: the bakery I work at sells RV, and tho I doubt we make it 100% "right," fairly often we get people in who somehow have never heard of it at all and we are left struggling to explain the cake and its taste to them. I love it myself, but for my life cannot adequately describe the taste! How would you describe this cake for those poor, deprived saps who must have been living under a rock?
So you’re bakery has a hard time describing it to customers eh? I don’t blame you guys :D It’s highly debatable
The whole red velvet debate is really interesting and people can get really passionate and defensive about it… lol… sometimes i just have to laugh cuz people take it to another level. haha
I don’t know really how to describe the taste I think because it’s traditionally made with buttermilk, vinegar, cocoa and then the cream cheese topping it gives it a tangy/sweet taste that sets it apart from more traditionally sweet cakes
The cocoa (which very little is traditionally used) gives off the impression it might be a chocolate cake, but it clearly is NOT although people like to describe it as a chocolate cake…. debate, debate, debate lol
The red food coloring doesn’t add flavor to the cake but it does make it stand out from other cakes because it’s so recognizable because of the vibrant/or deep red color (it gets deeper depending on how much cocoa u use)
If anyone else wants to restart the discussion, she is talking about this post from this morning :)
Please add your thoughts here and not by a private message that way everyone can participate.
