Red Velvet Cake w/ Blueberry Frosting

Do you wanna know a secret? Red velvet cake is actually just chocolate cake with red food coloring! Many red food dyes are made of questionable ingredients so instead we recommend a more natural approach by using beets! We use a fantastic red beet powder in this recipe but you can also use a ¼ cup of steamed beets and then process it into a soft puree and add to the wet ingredients in your cake. It should be used to replace a ¼ cup of liquid from the mixture so that cake isn’t too wet.
