Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
This was my first time using food coloring when baking and BEWARE. It's pretty hard to find traditional water-based food coloring these days so I had to use gel (or icing) food coloring. I didn't think there would be much of a difference, but I was quite wrong. Food coloring in general isn't tasteless and using too much will make it noticeable, but gel has an even more intense... off-putting flavor. The cake baked very well, had a good consistency and you could tell there was deliciousness to be had, but lightly masking that was the taste of the coloring. I still give it four stars because it was my own lack of info that had it turn out the way it did, but this is a pretty difficult recipe.
