Whidbey Island Red Velvet Cake?

SmrtBloned Oct 2, 2007 09:50 AM

A friend told us that she had the best red velvet cake on Whidbey Island. Can anyone tell me where a bakery is on the island that makes it? From what I understand, it's a speciality. We'd like to bring a cake back for our friend.

Thanks for your help in advance.

    I don't know of a bakery that makes "cakes" per se -- and I've live here since '75. The only bakery on South Whidbey is in Langley, DeMartinis. John Auburn makes fab wedding/birthday cakes (he made Bill-Melinda Gates among others). He no longer has a storefront presence, but go to www.jwdesserts.com. In Coupleville, there's Nibbles Specialty Bakery and Oak Harbor? I don't know. Good luck in yur search or you can always check Julia Child's cookbook :-).

      Thanks so much for the help. It was an odd request, and I'm glad I got the scoop from a local. Thanks.
