New Yorkers claim serving a red velvet cake slice started at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Canadians think the recipe comes from Eaton’s department store. Everybody wants to claim this scrumptious, stunning treat! But we Southerners know its true origins lie below the Mason Dixon line. Who doesn’t remember the armadillo cake in Steel Magnolias?
No armadillo-shaped treats here, though: just four classic red velvet layers topped with our rich cream cheese frosting. Want a dramatic dessert for your next dinner? Got a Gamecocks fan in your life? Red Velvet cake for the win.
