Red Velvet Cake is a popular dessert that originated in the United States and has since grown in popularity around the world. It’s a simple sponge cake using beet root juice or red food colouring, as well as cocoa powder, that’s really easy to make. It gets its trademark red velvet look from this. After that, a thick layer of white icing is applied to the cake. It’s a refined dessert that’s typically offered for important occasions.
