You'll Never Eat Red Velvet Again After Seeing These Blue Velvet Cakes (Photos)

As a foodie with a serious sweet tooth, I can honestly say there are not many things in life that compare to polishing off a delicious piece of cake.

However, not all confections are created equal, and when it comes to dominating the sugar scene, red velvet usually takes the cake.

Then again, what's not to love about a decadent, red-colored cake smothered in rich, creamy frosting?

Legend has it red velvet was first created by a chef at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and since then, this crimson cake has developed quite a fanbase across the country.

If you thought red velvet was the best thing ever to happen to your birthday cake, you'll be glad to know your beloved red cake is about to get even better.

Behold, blue velvet.

If you haven't heard of blue velvet before, let me fill you in on a sweet secret.

Blue velvet is pretty similar to red velvet, in terms of taste. It's a dense, moist cake with a combination of buttermilk, vanilla and cocoa powder as its main ingredients.

Unlike its red, passé predecessor, it has a badass blue interior concealed underneath its fluffy, cream cheese frosting facade.

Take a look at the pictures below to see this delicious blue cake craze.

Red velvet cake is pretty damn delicious.

If you haven't had it before, it's cake that combines the delectable flavors of chocolate, butter, buttermilk and vanilla.

It's red in appearance thanks to a hefty dose of food coloring in the batter.

Did I mention it's also topped with tons of delicious, cream cheese frosting?

If you thought red velvet was the be-all, end-all of cake flavors, you haven't seen anything yet.

There's a flavor out there that's sure to kick your beloved red velvet to the back of the bakery case.
