"The origin of a red velvet cake is a mystery. There is some evidence that red velvet cake dates back to the 1920s, but a number of urban myths regarding its origins have materialized over the years. It is traditionally thought that red velvet cakes come from the South. Many of you may remember the red velvet groom's cake shaped like an armadillo from Shelby's wedding in Steel Magnolias. It is also rumored that the cake was created in Canada at the Eaton’s department store bakery. Perhaps the most interesting tale surrounding the origin of red velvet cake involves the famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. So in reality, there is no way to answer the question of where did the red velvet cake come from."
