Ranks right up there with red velvet chocolate cake. Never understood that one, either.

I have read that it evolved from using beets to sweeten the cakes because of rationing during WWII.

In the US South, it evolved from using unprocessed cocoa powder (ours today is all Dutch-processed or something like that) and the vinegar in the recipe acted with some chemical in the cocoa, turning the batter red.

Well, this one I can see the sheer grue of it all being of interest.
I’m not sure about how to make a red velvet cupcake sinister.
But perhaps an expert could manage it.

I totally want to make sinister red velvet cupcakes! But my blog peeps would be the best ones to give them to and I can’t serve them through the internets!

This cold be cool if sipped and then allowed to dribble out of one’s mouth just prior to sitting in the dentist’s chair.
Other than that, I’m not dure. Need to think abou it.

Thanks for the link. They have the hot chocolate for my daughter’s college. Thinking it will make great little Xmas presents.
