The Red Hat Society (RHS) is a social organization originally founded in 1998 in the United States for women age 50 and beyond, but now open to women of all ages.
You should do a red velvet cake with purple frosting. I'll find a recipe... although you can buy mixes that are just fantastic, so you can focus more on decorating it.
Red Velvet Cake
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 ounces red food coloring
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 cup milk
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Grease two 9 inch round pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Make a paste of cocoa and food coloring. Set aside.
Combine the buttermilk, salt and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the cocoa mixture. Beat in the buttermilk mixture alternately with the flour, mixing just until incorporated. Stir together baking soda and vinegar, then gently fold into the cake batter.
Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
To Make Icing: In a saucepan, combine the milk and 5 tablespoons flour. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Set aside to cool completely. Cream together butter, 1 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla until light and fluffy, then stir in the cooled milk and flour mixture, beating until icing reaches spreading consistency.
Red Hat Society for younger women?
According to the FAQs at the official site:
We allow junior postulates membership if they will agree to wear pink hats and lavender clothing, exchanging them for red and purple only after having THE birthday. We like to refer to this ceremony as a RED-uation!
The spirit of the Society forbids that we make rules per se, but we strongly suggest that you not wear the full red and purple until you are fifty. Younger members are invited to wear all types of pink hats and all shades of lavender clothing and to otherwise participate fully in all that the Red Hat Society has to offer.
Some Pink Hatters may even opt to start chapters of their own. But, they need not keep to themselves. Many chapters contain members of a wide age range. The younger are simply "ladies in waiting" so to speak, among older friends. So what's wrong with that? Whoever thought women would be looking FORWARD to their fiftieth birthdays? Nevertheless, anticipate your RED-uations without reservation and enjoy the pink and lavender days to the fullest!
Are there any Red Hat Society ladies out there?
