Is Blue Velvet Cake On The Rise?

Supposedly, an unintentional chemical reaction between cocoa powder and buttermilk contributed to the very first Red Velvet Cake that was served at The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. Although it had a distinct red color as opposed to modern Red Velvet Cakes that call for added food coloring.

On the other end of the spectrum Blue Velvet Cake has been turning heads all over. All it calls for is adding some blue food coloring to vanilla cake and adding typically white frosting and perhaps berries. At Fate Cakes we are always seeking new and innovative ways to excite. We keep our menu up to date with new and inventive ideas; as well as, those becoming popular.

Blue Velvet cake may not be in the list of new flavors added to our variety of cupcakes, but our community spoke and we listened. You wanted (and needed) more chocolate in your life. With over 60% of our menu already tempting those chocolate lovers, we’ve added two new rich flavors. Our Chocolate Ganache and Ultimate Brownie will do more than tempt your cravings with endless amounts of chcocolatey goodness.

The Original Red Velvet Cake: A Sweet History

Red Velvet Cupcakes

For those of you who love Red Velvet cake, brace yourselves for some startling facts. It did not get its name from the food coloring that you pour into the batter. Your mind is about to be blown…here is what actually happened.

During the Great Depression, families were particularly more frugal and relying less on food colorings and extracts which could easily be eliminated. While the savings were good for those looking to pinch pennies, it was undoubtedly unfavorable news for the Adams Extract Company. To counter decreasing sales, employees at the company created the Adams Red Velvet Cake which was a concoction that incorporated red food coloring and butter extract instead of traditional ingredients.

The idea was a huge hit across households throughout America. Ever since then Red Velvet cake has been a common staple or addiction for dessert addicts. Here is a little bit of history as well regarding Red Velvet, early bakers of the recipe colored the cake with beet juice which possessed a deep dark red color. Its acquired name Red Velvet does not come from the color of the cake, but the smooth soft texture of the cake crumbs.

Always a crowd pleaser, the great news is that Fate Cakes has been producing delicious Red Velvet cake since our beginning. It’s been love at first bite and we even offer this delicious treat as one of our cupcake and cake pop flavors.

Why wait to enjoy a Red Velvet cupcake? We’re sure you’re already drooling so go ahead and order a dozen of these lil’ treats and we’ll bring them directly to your door. Hand delivered with love. CLICK HERE to visit our shopping cart of give us a call (614.219.9429) to order over the phone.

Wedding Dos and Don’ts: Should You Serve A Cutting Cake

Is tradition still a large part of weddings in 2016? Many of our brides come to us requesting a dessert that is unique from any other event but they also want to keep some things the same as their parents and grandparents. Those same couples are asking for a cupcake display instead of cake, so when do you still incorporate a cake cutting in your reception?

First, let’s cover why cutting into a cake cake has become a large focal point of the wedding. It’s not just a great photo op but is pretty tasty too. The guests will also have fun if both bride and groom dodge each other during the ultimate ‘cake in the face’ duel.

The couple will cut into the bottom tier of cake to symbolize the continued relationship and the groom is also said to place his hand on top of the brides to assist her cut the first piece. This is said to have meaning for the new husband in support of his bride as she in return taking care of her groom and their family.

The cutting cake should also be used to serve not just you and your newlywed but also those immediate family members. First provide a piece to your parents and then any bridal party members if you have additional servings to provide.

We know all of this planning can be overwhelming and of course are here to answer any questions about pricing or your thoughts over the phone. To speak with a Fate Cakes cake design specialist or an event coordinator, give us a call (614) 219.9429.

Should I offer a dessert bar at my wedding?

Call us today to schedule your wedding or large event

During the first phase of planning your wedding, the desserts may not be the first item on your list, but it will soon become a large discussion between you and your fiance. Questions like, how much do I need, what type should I get and what design options do I have all might be part of the worry as your big day gets closer.

Within the last few years dessert bars have become a popular trend as it supplies guests with multiple options and there are endless varieties you can arrange around a large display. Even if look is not as important as price when it comes to this item on your list, you can even keep a dessert bar within a specified budget if you plan early.

Will all your guests eat dessert? That will be one of the most frustrating questions to tackle when planning your bar. Read our article about how to choose the Cake to Guest Ratio posted earlier this month. This will give more concrete information on how to plan appropriately for your guest count. Because not every invitee will eat cake, this is a large concern for most brides; therefore, they plan accordingly and offer different desserts as additional options and order less cake.

Some different desserts which are paired nicely with your cake:

Cookies! Not just tasty but also beautiful. They items can be customized to your theme or colors and there are a variety of designs which can be hand drawn and added to the cookie. These little treats are also very popular as favors for your guests and they can be wrapped in a cellophane bag to keep freshness.

Cake Pops are on of our most popular items which are added to every wedding to accommodate for those guests who are not fans of the traditional piece of cake. Each are individually wrapped with a ribbon which can be customized to a particular swatch. There are also stands which we rent for the convenience of displaying your lil’ treats.

The final option to keep in mind when planning a dessert bar is the possibility to forgo your cake all together and offer cupcakes as the main dessert. With a larger variety of flavors, garnishes and designs, they can be a cute addition to your bar and you won’t have to worry about what guests do with all that left over cake. There is also a large price difference between serving size for cucpakes vs. cake. To read more about how much money you can save, check out our article about Cupcakes vs. Cakes – The Price Difference.
