Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix


Product Description

Back in the 19th century 'velvet' cakes were considered a fancier cake than the coaser-crumbed cakes which were prevalent at the time. Whilst the redness of red velvet cake is sometimes achieved through the distinctive colour of particular types of cocoa, more typically colour it is simply added into the mix to give the distinctive scarlet hue that one associates with a good red velvet cake. This mix is also top-notch for making red velvet cupcakes. Serves 12.
