Baking is a conjugal establishment of art and science. The “Red” color can be infused into red velvet cake in several ways, including chemical reaction; natural coloring of crushed red fruits like cherries, raspberries, strawberries or red vegetables like beets and also by artificial chemical color agents. According to the Science this “red” chemical reaction occurs when combining alkaline (baking soda/powder) with acid (cocoa, buttermilk, vinegar). Red Devil Cakes first appeared around the 1930s. Probably the most famous of all red velvet cakes is the groom's Armadillo Cake served in the movie Steel Magnolias (1989).

The earliest recipe, titled “Red Velvet Cake”, was published in 1960. Earlier recipes of Red Velvet Devil Cake of 1951 are not the same. The color in Red Velvet cake is achieved by chemical reaction (soda=alkaline; vinegar=acid) and by the addition of red food dye. But the old-fashioned “red” was not sufficiently “red”. The earliest recipe you can find out of red velvet cake was published in Texas. Surveying the historical newspapers, you will be amused to see that this recipe spread like wildfire all over the country on the summer of 1960.

Red Velvet Cake Prepared during World War 2:

During World War 2, soldiers and civilians had to ration off food and supplies where the baking products like sugar and butter were a part of it. Some bakers used beet juice in their cakes. The red color of the beets makes the base of the cake more delicious. Beets work as a filler that keeps the cake from being dry. The red color of the desserts isn't always preferred for the purpose of taste. Instead, the dramatic red color has a more eye-catching, elegant appeal to impress guests.
