I was on FaceBook and the stunning photo for this popped up on the side bar. I just had to make this! EXPERT TIPS: To achieve the royal blue velvet color, remember the toothpickful of violet paste food color; if forgotten, the cake will bake up turquoise in color. Paste food color will create the royal blue velvet color; liquid or gel food color may not get you the desired results. My grocery store didn't carry the food color pastes; I found them at a crafts store in the Wilton baking section; they are also called "icing color". This cake is so fun to make, present, and delicious enough that this may become my signature cake in the future. I recommend making it way in advance as it needs time to "sit" in order to control the cake layers from the frosting and to harden the candy garnish.
