Blue Velvet Cake has all of the great taste of the more traditional Red Velvet Cake, but with such a fun twist that everyone will remember it. Great for 4th of July (make a red & blue), boy's baby shower & Father's day! Check out my yummy frosting recipe or use your own favorite . Every one who tastes this cake is hooked ... Enjoy!
