red velvet, for two very different reasons. Brownie, because she loves red velvet; me, because I don't understand the *massive* appeal of it. It's cocoa cake with food dye. Granted it's usually pretty, but it's because of food dye that may or may not contribute to developing cancer. And I don't want cancer. Our friend Nichelle Stephens of Cupcakes Take the Cake also sees this conflict and has decided to hold a RED VELVET CAKE DEBATE!!!!
Nicole Taylor, Allison Robicelli, and Shari Ledgister—as they debate red velvet cake: it's pros, it's cons, and it's grey areas. Of course, there will be red velvet cake to be had. Best part is tickets are only $5. Yes, $5. If you're a dessert person and want to know what the experts think (and have a chance to meet them live and in person), you should definitely stop by. Plus, you'll probably get all the cake you can eat.
Red Velvet Cake Debate is going on Friday the 14th at 6:30pm, at 412 Broadway. Click here for more information and to buy tickets!
