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.

If you have an interest in adding some for options to our menu we’re all ears. Your thoughts and opinions area always welcome. Please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to discuss sweet options with you!

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.

NEW Salted Caramel Cupcake

Yes, we folded under pressure. Customers have been requesting our creative team design a Salted Caramel flavor and we think we’ve lived up to the expectation. There are many competitors which have also added this popular item to their menu and we think it’s a perfect option to pair with our other selections.

Let’s break it down:

Our very popular vanilla cupcake is topper with a luscious and creamy vanilla buttercream but it’s the homemade toffee and carmel which give this cupcake it’s extra spunk. The toffee is buttery and crisp with a layer of semi-sweet chocolate coating. The drizzle of our top-secret carmel almost melts over the toffee and cupcake itself. Worried about mess? Don’t be. The flavor itself makes up for the ‘face cleanup’.

We’re continuously updating our menu online and we love our customer feedback. Click Here to view our online cupcake menu and feel free to contact our bakery with any menu suggestions.

Fate Cakes and Athleta team up in May, 2015

Athleta Cupcakes

athleta_cupcakes It may have been almost 3 months since our last post, and boy do we have a ton of updates for you! In April of this year, Athleta ( a sub company to The Gap), contacted our bakery to become an affiliate with their store for some upcoming fundraisers.

We were happy to be a part of 4 different events during the month of May, some of which involved Easters Seals for a Shop For A Cause event, where every shopper who mentions the fundraiser receives 10% off their order and a percentage of then every sale goes to Easter Seals.

There was also a larger planned event which involved The American Lung Association, and in a similar fashion, all transactions made under the Shop For A Cause would be given a discount at the register and The Lung Force would receive a portion of the sales for their organization.

At Fate Cakes, we take pride in our community and love giving back to the Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas. We make dozens of donations to small and large fundraisers – ranging from a couple cupcakes/desserts, to large events held within the Downtown Columbus area. We are happy to be a part of this community and there is nothing more important than making sure our community knows how much we love and care about them.

If you’re interested in learning more about our fundraisers, and continued affiliation with Athleta, check out our Fate Cakes Facebook Page and Fate Cakes Twitter Account accounts where you can follow our daily and weekly events. If you’re part of an organization looking for some sweet treats at your next event, feel free to contact our Event Coordinator, Marie O’Stroske at 614.219.9429 to set up a time to discuss your organization and the event.
