Orange Velvet Cake?

adam | Apr 6, 2007 06:30 AM

I'm making a red velvet cake this weekend (using the Cakeman Raven recipe from I've made it before, and it's great, and always a big hit.

I'm making it for Mets Opening Day, though, and the thought occurred to me, why not an Orange Velvet Cake? Mix in some yellow food coloring with the red?

What do you all think? Would it just end up brown and ugly, or might it work? Any thoughts on how much yellow to add, or just don't mess with it?
