I’m a big fan of red velvet cake. I’m NOT a big fan of red dye # 40, or any chemical additive for that matter. Why add a chemical cocktail to a beautiful cake? This cake is from Sophistimom. What I love about Jaimee, is her ability to turn a cake into a science experiment—playing with beet powder until she gets just the right hue.
And when you visit Jaimee’s blog, be sure to check out what she’s reading with her kids. The former first grade teacher in me fell in love with both her recipes and her bookshelf.
