Where is the best Red Velvet Cake?
I have an urge for old fashioned Red Velvet Cake. There are some good attempts at local bakeries but nothing quite hits the spot. Can anyone recommend someplace in LA? Thank you.
The Cobbler Lady on Crenshaw Blvd. Old school style red velvet cake and cupcakes with a hint of cocoa and frosting done just right. FYI, I've found the cupcakes to be more consistent in flavor and texture than the cake as the cake has been a little dry a couple of times. Nevertheless, it's the most authentic I've had anywhere in town which may not necessarily suit some people's expectations and tastes of what red velvet should be like... worth a try though if you're searching.
Red Velvet is my favorite!! I just had probably the best one from a place called LARK in Silverlake...not sure where, but I'm sure they have a website...Also, for cupcakes, the best I've found (better than all the cupcake bakeries) is at Toast, on 3rd. Just try to go first thing in the AM, as they are usually sold out by early afternoon. Also, it gets crazy with young Hollywood, and parking sucks...
And just so we are on the same page...I like my red velvet to be very moist, and a sort of dark reddish brown..NOT super fake red (Auntie Ems) or dry (Crumbs). Also, the frosting has to be a bit on the savory side...very cream-cheesy, less frosting-y...
I love the red velvet cupcakes/cake at SusieCakes, and was also impressed with the ones at Sweet Lady Jane. Both are supremely moist, and SusieCakes' cupcakes come with an additional squirt of cream cheese frosting in the middle. Delish!
