I was wondering if the cake itself could be orange and blue instead of red. I am not sure about the cocoa distorting the color of the cake batter. Then decorate it simply. Also thought about making them as cupcakes, I thought it might make a nice tailgate item. Now many people use New York style Black and White cookies but change the frosting to half orange and half blue. They are good but becoming sort of a cliche. I could put the coloring into a white cake batter but, I thought the red velvet would be a little different. I guess I need to get into the kitchen and experiment a little.

You could probably skip the cocoa, and achieve any color you like, if you have cocoa in the batter, it will make the orange more of an autumn muted orange and the blue a bit darker.
Wilton paste colors would work well and are more cost effective than buying the bottles in the grocery store.

my suggestion would be to use a vanilla cake recipe if u want to color the batter cuz yes the cocoa WILL effect the colors.Why dont u make red velvet cup cakes and tint the frostings instead of the cake batter.blue and orange swirls or blue and orange spider web? i think they will look cute!
