Watch the faces as they cut into a blue cake! Taste it. Then they will ask for the recipe!

Not sure if this recipe has ingredients missing or not, but this was a horrible cake! There is no leavening agent in it to make it rise, and there is no cocoa in it like a traditional red/blue velvet cake. When I took it out of the oven it was super thin and it tasted like sweetened cake flour. Or Cream of wheat to be nice! I hate to be so mean...I hope that it is just missing something!

Ok so disappointed. The kids would not eat this cake. Threw it away in the garbage. I'm not sure what happened...followed the recipe. Maybe whoever tries it will have better luck!

Dewanda... this would be fun for a smurf b-day party! ; )
