Red Velvet Cake in W. L.A. ?

I've searched the site and found many posts, but cannot find the few places in W. L.A. or Brentwood that have the most perfect red velvet cake. Your recs are greatly appreciated...

  1. I went to Louise's on Pico/Overland last night and noticed red velvet cake on the dessert tray -- looked pretty good but I didn't have a slice.

    1. My S.O. got me red velvet cake for last year's birthday from Bluebird Cafe. It was so tender and the cream cheese icing was just so right! I recommend it VERY highly. Actually, my birthday is coming up again soon...mmmmm!

        I forgot about Bluebird! I love their cupcakes, much more than Sprinkles.

      2. My office received some red velvet cupcakes from Suziecakes in Brentwood and they were incredible. I believe they do sheet cakes as well.

            Third Susiecakes. Their red velvet cupcakes are my absolute favorite, and you can get larger cakes in various sizes.

          2. Sprinkles Cupcakes in Beverly Hills has folks lined up around the block to buy their red velvet cupcakes. Not bad at all.

            1. If you like Devil's Food, try Sprinkles, but if you want Red Velvet, go somewhere else. Far too strong a chocolate taste and lacking strength of the buttermilk and vinegar components.
