What is all the fuss about Red Velvet Cake

probably because it wasn't around in the South in the Fifties. from what i understand, it started in the Fifties at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, was called the Waldorf Astoria Red velvet Cake. I think it became populat later on in the South

There is a Cake Recipe on the Jar Label of Aunt nellie's Sweet and sour Harvard Beets. i made it about 25 years ago, Beets are put in a Blender, put into the Cake. it is a Spice Cake. the Batter is Red, but comes out Brown. I tried it again a few years ago, didn't turn out quite the way i remember, but I think it is still on the Jar of Aunt nellie's Sweet and Sour Harvard beets.

Thanks, I read someplace that it started out in the fifties. It was Served at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, was called the Waldorf Astoria Red Velvet Cake. So, it started in the North, but has Become a Southern Tradition.

I just realized that maybe the Frosting for the RVC might Contain Cornstarch, but I have never seen it in any Powdered Sugar Frosting Recipes I have ever seen. I am sure i wouldn't care for it if it did

A friend made a RVC back in the seventiies. then it wasn't called a RVC, it was WALDORF ASTORIA RED CAKE, And I recall a Funny taste with the Food Coloring. i prefer a Plain Choc. cake, the Coloring Ruined it

Just Curious, Why would powdered Sugar Frostings have a Corn Starch Taste? I have never heard of a Recipe for powdered Sugar Frosting with Corn starch? Look up a recipe for ButterCream Frosting---Don't Believe there is Any Cornstarch

Is it a Southern tradition? Just Curious when it was Invented? or i should say Who came up with the Idea? A friend of mine made a Chocolate Cake with Red Food Coloring back in the mid Seventies. She called it THE WALDORF ASTORIA RED CAKE. And isn't the Waldorf in New York City? Just Curious, so if its been around since the Seventies, sounds like a Northern tradition thanks
