Red Velvet Cake in Philadelphia
I am craving red velvet cake. When I was in NYC I would go to a few good bakeries which made it but here in Philadelphia no luck so far. Anyone know of a good place to get yummy red velvet cake??? I dont even mind mail ordering from NY but I dont know any bakeries that do. Thanks!
I would imagine that any of the good bakeries in Philly would make you a red velvet cake if you call up and order it. Try Petit 4 in Old City and Pink Rose at 4th and Bainbridge for starters.

Petit 4 has been closed since the summer and is going to be a cheese shop in it's next incarnation so I'd pass that one (unless you want cheese...)
I think Brown Betty Desserts in Northern Liberties has Red Velvet cupcakes sometimes but I would call first since it isn't part of the regular menu. They didn't have them when I was there the last time. However, some columnist really liked them. Suefoo, if you have a good recipe that doesn't use a load of red food coloring, I would love to have.
