    Hey Carina!!
    As in the video for the red velvet cake can you use anything other that red food coloring to giving the red velvet color… because lots of food coloring kinda makes me sick 😷 so ya I have never tried to make red velvet ever in my life so I don’t know if red food coloring is what your supposed to add to make it red velvet and ya just let me know. ☺️🎊😋.

    • Carina Stewart says:

      Hi! There is actually ways to make it using beetroot for the colour but that changes the recipe up a bit. Red food colouring isn’t exactly great for you at all but this cake is a treat so I wouldn’t worry about it too much 😊 I would love to see a picture next time you make something!

  4. Harry Nicholson says:
