Red Velvet Cake (fact or fiction)
by Patrick Kenna
(San Diego CA USA)
I have ordered a 4 tier wedding cake from a fairly reputable local bakery. It is 4 tier with white fondant icing, the cake is a red velvet cake and the design has black on the white fondant. At the time of ordering the bakery said it was no problem. Now it is 3 weeks from the wedding and the bakery has called me to come rediscuss the cake as they said they are having problems with the red velvet bleeding through the fondant and they may have to order a specialized coloring which may not be ordered in enough time.
I am suspecting either they don't want to do it or something else is up. I would like to be able to go into their meeting knowing the facts and realities of this situation. I don't want the wool being pulled over my eyes. Can you help enlighten me.
