Feeling Blue?

Not because I’m sad. No, it’s because of the cake I’m baking.

This is the batter for a “Royal Blue Velvet Cake,” our dessert to celebrate the Royal Wedding tomorrow.

I’m 100% certain I’ve never baked anything this color before. Remember in Beezus and Ramona, when Ramona sneaks her doll into Beezus’s birthday cake while it’s in the oven? Well, I can’t shake the feeling that I’m cooking a smurf!
