You Valentine's red cupcake on that deep blue and white plate is beautiful! If the product is as good as the presentation ... I might ...er...bite. But probably not, I cook but am not patient enough to bake.

Actually, Fishy, I nicked the photo from the Web (see the Undaunted post). But, yes, it's lovely and gives me ideas!

K9,
Go visit www.smittenkitchen.com , they have a recipe for the original Beet Red Velvet Cake.

I know this sounds crazy but I was sure I remembered a great granny making her cake with beets and seltzer and also I think the Amish ladies with baked goods at the markets still offer "beet cake".

Probably not any more surprising than sugar skeletons on the hemline of a Valentine's dress ! Please post photos.

Aunty Belle said...

Oh, an K9 Pup, I'se havin'a ZUCCHINI muffin fer breakfast--why not beets in cakes????

It was made with beets – that's so cool!

All the historical information I have says this cake was first made at the Waldorf-Astoria in the 1930s, but I always suspected that its roots were more rural.
