So I did a bit of experimenting today. I’d seen a couple of good examples of red velvet cake being tinted a blue or green, and I had yet to use my new Lilac food colouring from Silver Spoon, so I gave it a tint. The result? Not great, as you can see above, it kept the same shade. As a result… would recommend when colouring red velvet, use darker colours, as the lighter ones really do just seem to make it look more chocolatey!
Lilac velvet? Not the same ring!
