Red Velvet Cake

KiWe Kid Nov 16, 2006 08:43 PM

My assistant is pregnant and is craving Red Velvet Cake. She's not been able to locate any in Toronto thus far.

Anyone know of any place in Toronto that sells Red Velvet Cake?

    Somebody mentionned in another thread (the cupcake thread?) that there are bad RV CUPcakes at Pusateri's, and I've had a RV cupcake from Kubo (also not great, but I have no other experience to compare it to).

      Kubo's "babycakes" are terrible.

      I just had the red velvet cupcake from kubo on Monday and it was fantastic. I've had many red velevet cakes/supcakes before that are dry (I read somewhere that all the food colouring dries them out) but this was moist and delicious. However they did tell us they'd just arrived fresh that morning. So you obviously have to get them within a day or 2 of baking.

        They are usually frozen.

          The last few times I have had Kubo red velvet cupcakes, they have been fantastic. Perhaps they are taking greater care to ensure they are served fresh.

            Where is Kubo? I am dying to know because I love red velvet cake and you say they have the best.

            Try the following:

            Eini Cupcakes (fantastico! see if they'll make custom red velvet flavour) - www.eini.ca

            Marmalade Cake Company - www.marmaladecakecompany.com - they may also custom make red velvet.

            Or, go to Magnolia Bakery in New York - huge slices of red velvet cake!

              There are wonderful, moist red velvet cupcakes and cakes at Sweet Bliss Baking Company on Queen Street East, and the icing is a cooked buttercream, smooth and delish.

                I had a mini red velvet cake from Sweet Bliss on Feb. 10th, and the only thing I enjoyed was the icing. The actual cake was forgettable. I suspect I need to try a truly great red velvet cake because at this point, I don't understand its appeal. At Sweet Bliss, the cakes are kept open in a fridge (but mini-cakes are cello-wrapped).

                Starbucks has Red Velvet Cupcake but haven't tried one.

                  I've tried Starbuck's Red Velvet cupcake and they're pretty good - although I haven't tried other Red Velvet (cup)cakes so I really don't have anything for comparison.

                  I'm 37 weeks pregnant and can totally relate. I just had a delicious red velvet cupcake at Sweet Tooth on the Danforth. Moist cake with creamy, buttery frosting.
