Recipe by Dixie from Kansas

ere is the tried and true recipe for red velvet--just use blue instead of red. The chef I learned this from was professionally trained and threw around the name Nick Malgieri as her teacher. Who knows. I do know it is good and it called a high ratio cake due to liquids vs flour. Dont let that scare you off if you have never heard of it . It is an EASY cake but BIG(tall) and it will NOT be dry
