Why does anyone really give a shite about the name? It's cake. It's traditionally red using some sort of dye. It has to be called something. What about shite on a shingle? Toad in a hole? Pigs in a blanket? Scrapple? Baked Alaska? Possum pie doesn't have possum in it.
Man. People can always find something to bitch about.
Put a red velvet cake in front of me and tell me it's cherry pie and I'll eat it without complaint. I'd ask for a sugar free glass of milk with it but several on here would tell me there is no such thing as sugarless milk.
