Debate Red Velvet Cake!

Slice of Stars and Stripes Cake
We here at Blondie & Brownie are a little obsessed with 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!!!!

Red Velvet
Yes, next Friday, you can sit in on a panel with some of New York's choicest dessert folks—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!

But, if properly made, it's not JUST cocoa cake with red dye--it's got a special taste from the buttermilk in the batter and the cream cheese frosting. If you've got a red velvet cake WITHOUT those two things, I agree--not worth it.

I've barely been able to resist the siren song of a little container of 12 mini red velvet cupcakes that's been haunting me at C-Town for the last month.
