Red Velvet Cake Recipe By Belly Amy's & More

Red Velvet cakes originated in the American-African nation in the early 19th century to commemorate the struggle and freedom of the community. The cake got its name owing to its velvety touch and started becoming popular by the early 20th century. Red in Red velvet cakes are achieved through beetroot or edible food colours.

In Belly Amys we have more than twenty varieties of red velvet flavours with our chef Shikha Kapoor trying to introduce some unique fusion concepts that have taken years to make as the perfect blend is always hard to get. We are happy to announce that all our variants are one better than the other and each one is a pride to our red velvet family. The most frequently ordered cake not only has the charisma but with Belly Amy’s we add the extra taste so that you can always expect a different variant to satisfy your cravings. 

At Belly Amy's we always create fresh cakes, and the specialty is how our cakes are paired with cream cheese or butter cream frosting that is different from plain cream frosting as we don’t compromise on the quality of our cakes.
