Red Velvet Cake

caligirl009 Mar 29, 2008 03:59 PM

Hey Hounders, LOL leave it to me to read a food blog and see Red Velvet Cake. I really have been wanting to try this cake for a long time. Anyone know where I can get some around here? If it helps, I live in the Northgate area. Thanks!

    I know Trophy cupcakes in Wallingford Center does a wonderful (and very popular) RedVelvet cupcake... all their cupcakes are delicious, so I would definitely recommend! enjoy!

        another vote for trophy, but have to say that cupcake royale's red velvet is a bit dry for my taste.

      The Kingfish Cafe has it on their dessert menu. It's really good.

      It's one of Trophy Cupcakes' everyday cupcake varieties too: Red Velvet: Traditional Southern Buttermilk Cake with a Hint of Cocoa topped with Crea, Cheese Frosting: http://www.trophycupcakes.com/ $2.99 or $33/dozen

        When I worked in Madison Park I used to get the red velvet cupcakes from Bella Dolce...giant, moist, and delicious - topped with a cream cheese frosting with a lovely hint of coconut. I could really go for one of those right about now!

          Thanks everyone for your replies. I will need to get to Trophy Cakes, I heard that from other people as well. I work in Madison Park too. Hmm...may have to do a comparison on both locations. The Kingfish Cafe sounds like a great dinner spot as well.I will have the fiance take me there.

                On capital hill there's a place called The Cellar (it's behind the place where Cassis Bistro used to be) and they have the BEST red velvet cake ever. Unfortunately the rest of their food sucks though. But just get the cake to go.
