It seems like until quite recently, red velvet cake was a relative obscurity, a Southern delicacy. Its bold color is the main draw, but even James Beard, in his book American Cookery, called the cake bland and uninteresting. I have to agree. It mainly tastes of red food coloring. So when it cross-pollinates into non-cake things like coffee syrup and ice cream, I have to wonder what the point is. Trend forecast: This will make a roaring comeback in January and February 2014.
