I went to a baby shower last weekend where there was a fabulous cake. It was 2 tiered with the bottom one being red velvet cake. It was the most delicious cake but being curious I looked up what made the cake red. Disappointed to find it’s just food colouring. Definitely my favourite cake! What’s yours?
I haven't tried red velvet cake, but I'm certain that it's not food colouring. Hmm? I have just checked all the recipes that I looked at just used colouring!! We once used green food colouring for fairy cakes, they looked very strange. Our granddaughter baker loved them. My favourite cake has to be ginger or a lovely rich fruit cake.
I don't like anything with dried fruit in but hubs loves this cake I make. It's called a Cut and Come again. It's a very light fruit cake cooked in a loaf tin. I have trouble getting him to eat so I make it a lot. He can't resist it. I also make scones once or twice a week.
My favourite cake would be chocolate with real cream or a Mississippi mud pie. Not sure if you can call that a cake but it's really good.
Maybe people could post their best recipes for us all to try.
