We all love the sweet flavor of red velvet cake, and how soft and delicate the cake is overall. While it seems that red velvet cake is special and has its own specific flavor, we’re going to let you in on a secret – red velvet is simply chocolate and red food coloring!
While there are a number of ways to color the cake red including beet juice, red food coloring is just as popular and delicious. The main difference between red velvet cake and chocolate cake is that most chocolate cakes use real chocolate, while red velvet tends to use more cacao powder to flavor it.
Not only this, but red velvet uses the addition of an ingredient such as almond flour or cornstarch to give the cake a softer mouthfeel that you can’t find in a normal cake.
By using this soft and delicate cake as the base of a cake pop, you’ll have the softest bites that are tantamount to becoming an addiction. The cake pops use another ingredient that goes well with red velvet, which is the addition of cream cheese.
This gives the cake a tangy flavor while adding more creaminess into the morsels, making this only the most perfect dish for all occasions! Watch the video above for the step-by-step tutorial for the recipe.
