Blue Velvet Cake

Updated: May 30, 2022


Blue Velvet seems like the perfect title to a jazzy poem. And with that being said...

Blue skies turn into blue nights.

Blue lows, blue heights.

Your favorite color is blue right?

Blue Jays fly with blue kites.

White house draped in blue lights.

America, the glue right?

Blue Velvet, goodnight.

Straight off the DOME! I didn't call to this poetry game, it called to me! Okay, okay... I'm done. So any who seeing as how I had a few blue velvet cakes on the agenda - I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share with you all a Blue Velvet Cake recipe.

This recipe is super easy. it's actually very similar to my standard cake recipe just with added cocoa powder. So some of you avid bakers may already be partial to the process. I needed to make enough batter for three 1/4 sheet cakes, so I quadrupled the recipe which you'll notice in the video. I thought it would be cool to show you how I make larger cake orders. I just pull out both mixers, clear some space and gather my mise en place (whoa took me back to culinary school).
