Red Velvet Cinnamon Rolls Baking Kit

$27.99

Red velvet is more than just a delightful, moist cake or confection—it’s a Juneteenth staple. For the Black community, red velvet cake symbolizes the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States on June 19th, 1865. 

At the time, velvet cakes took on a reddish-brown hue due to chemical interactions with some ingredients. During World War II, the red shade came from adding beetroot, as shortages in supplies called for some substitutes.

The distinctive red velvet color we know today didn’t come about until the invention of a specific red food coloring in the 20th century. The red shade took on meaning to commemorate the hardship enslaved African Americans endured. Today, it’s still brought to the table in celebration and remembrance. 

Our baking kit brings red velvet to a comforting classic: cinnamon rolls. All the warmth and decadent sweetness you love about cinnamon rolls, with a symbolic twist.
