The history of Red Velvet cake goes something like this - there's not much to it actually. Bakers during the Great Depression added food colouring or beets to cake sponges that were made using buttermilk and a dash of vinegar to make it extra scrumdiddlyumptious and visually striking. The buttermilk makes the sponges retain its moisture and lightness, while the red hue is suggestive, tempting and attention grabbing. We eat with our eyes first don't we?
Some people consider the Red Velvet cake posh and fancy, and some people think its crass and brash. At Anges we think it's all of that and created our version by amping up the ooomph factor and making it totally deep, dark and deliciously naughty. You could almost picture Jessica Rabbit jumping out of this cake singing "Happy Birthday, Mr President".
Three layers of deep and dark red velvet sponge with Belgian cocoa and buttermilk sponges, smothered and sandwiched with cream cheese Swiss meringue buttercream, glazed in Belgian chocolate ganache and decorated with red velvet cupcake, mini cupcakes, chocolate pearls, buttercream flowers and red velvet brownie and cookie dough truffles.
