Red velvet cake - why?

LaureltQ | Jun 6, 2011 05:45 PM

I don't understand why people like red velvet cake so much. Based on my experience and understanding, it's very mildly(if at all) chocolatey and packed full of red dye. Personally I'd rather have a true chocolate cake or a true white or yellow cake. Do people just like it because it is usually frosted with a cream cheese frosting?

Despite it's seeming drawbacks, people seem drawn to it - why?

And yes, I'm kind of a cake snob.
