A Distinct Take on Cupcakes: Introducing Red Velvet

When you think of cupcakes, what flavors come to mind? Chocolate? Vanilla? Perhaps even Fruit? For cookie and cupcake connoisseur Original Crumbs has been delivering delicious treats since 2003 with flavors like chocolate candy, psychedelic sugar, and sprinkle sundae. But nestled within our array of flavors is one that stands out with its unique color and taste: Red Velvet.

For those unfamiliar with this delectable dessert, Red Velvet cupcakes are made from a concoction of cocoa powder, butter, sugar, and buttermilk. Launched in 2002, the flavor has been a mainstay in the cupcake industry ever since, and Original Crumbs is proud to offer this flavor as part of our menu.

The flavor combination is distinctive and certainly worth seeking out. Not only does Red Velvet have a rich and sweet taste, but it also adds an aesthetic appeal that can’t be found in any other cupcake flavor. A Red Velvet cupcake, with its luscious deep red color, is a must-have for anyone looking to make a dazzling and delicious dessert.

But it wasn’t always this way. Prior to the mid-2000s, Red Velvet was a flavor with limited recognition. So how did Red Velvet become the defining flavor of cupcakes? Some may credit it to the rise of cupcake culture, which surged with the opening of the now-iconic Magnolia Bakery in 1996. Others have cited TheSex And The City movie as being responsible for spreading the popularity of Red Velvet.

What is certain is that the flavor’s unique and distinctly sophisticated taste makes for an attractive and elegant option when searching for cupcakes. With its subtle sweetness, Red Velvet cupcakes can be served as a mid-afternoon snack, a perfect pairing for afternoon tea, or as a subtly sweet and beautiful dessert.

At Original Crumbs, we specialize in exquisite pastry creation that’s sure to impress.
