I know if I did put green frosting on the red cake there would be more left over. :)
Yeah, might have to go with the full bottle on the next one because I am making one for our Christmas dinner.
I just have trouble with it because I'm from the era of the "red dye number 2 recall"
It was a long time before they started making red M&Ms again after that.
Remember?

But then again, they could be going natural and making the red dye from insects!  Yummy

Do you think in 6 years I'll be able to reuse the "1" candle if I lean it a little to the right? ;)

I think it'll work!!!!
Just get another "ONE" like that, and you'll be ready for 57, 71, 75, 77, 115, 151, 157, 175, and 177!

Have been out of pocket and just seen this.

Cake looks delicious.

One question. Does it make your tongue red after eating it?

Hi CRG,
No it didn't dye our tongues but my kitchen looked like a crime scene after the mess I made making the cake. ;)

My blood sugar just went up 20 points looking at the pics! 

And I think the red with green icing is a great idea. - I'd do one, but everyone coming for Christmas is on restricted diets.

Carolyn,

My wife loves Red velvet Cupcakes.  The little bakery she frequents closed recently without notice.  Other bakers can't seem to get this recipe right according to the wife. 

I think I will surprise her with your recipe.  Thanks for the inspiration.

Yours looks great and plenty red.

I must say, I'm not a cake eater, but that cake looks GREAT!

Must be the red, like the way I like the middle of my steak.  ;D
