Raise your hand if you’re a fan of red velvet desserts! I’ve got both my hands up. Ordering this southern classic is easy as pie, but getting that bakery quality red velvet flavor and coloring is a whole other challenge. Until now. Let me introduce you to the cheat of the century. LorAnn’s Red Velvet Emulsion. It’s red velvet flavor and coloring in one tiny, perfect bottle.
Adding 2-3 tablespoons to your favorite red velvet recipe will get you guaranteed results every time. It’s easy to find at stores like Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, WalMart and my favorite, Home Goods! It can be added to your favorite chocolate or vanilla cake recipe, but here’s my favorite recipe for red velvet from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten.
After cake cools, frost with your favorite frosting. I love a classic cream cheese frosting with red velvet!
