Made popular by the 1989 film Steel Magnolias and having become a very cosmopolitan treat thanks to the US series Sex And The City, red velvet cake is a dark red-coloured butter cake with soft velvety texture and cream cheese frosting.
The characteristic hue of this classic Southern American cake comes initially from the reddish purple pigments in cocoa powder, which is enhanced by food colouring.
