Why you should embrace "red velvet"

Picture of a mac version of red velvet. Balanced on the MacBook. ( Done quickly to avoid crumbs)
Picture taken with macro mode. Note the flowers on the plate which are clear too
The red-ness had a tinge of pink before being popped into the oven

The recipe is from recipe girl. ( Click HERE for link ) I ooh-ed and aah-ed at the brilliant red colouring. The original plan was for me to actually do it. But I got distracted with egg-collecting on FB and only emerged from the hatchling world in time to pour the batter into the weeny cupcake holders. Granted it has lots of empty calories and surely the amount of artificial colouring recommended is enough to colour the lining of your stomach a permanent shade of red, but provided you don't havw an aversion of being left with a red tongue after tea, I do not see a good enough reason to stay away from these beauties. Enjoy!
