Red Velvet Cake at Los Feliz Costco

Was wondering when Costco would have red velvet cake and today was the day. Picked one up for $9.99, a huge rustic looking cake. Didn't disappoint for the price and quality. Yes, real cream cheese frosting.

  1. I saw it there yesterday (Friday), and was severely tested to buy it . Unfortunately common sense took over and I didn't. I had to make due with the lamb loin chops (which were great).

    But yes, the cake looked great. Sigh...

      I followed a similar path on fighting off the temptation. I don't know how long it would take us to finish off a whole cake. And their lamb loin chops have never failed me.

    2. How funny! I noticed the red velvet cake at Costco today (Richmond), but although I was pretty sure I'd never seen it discussed on chowhound, I wasn't sure it was new (I don't shop at Costco that often, and I rarely check out the baked goods). So now I know: new and good.

        saw it at foster city on sunday too. it looked really good, but we also got the lamb loin chops instead :).

      2. Oh no. You know what this means: I'm going to Costco. OH NO. I hate temptation.

        Wait -- if it's at the Los Feliz Costco, is it safe to assume it's at the Torrance one, or will be soon? Is that how they roll?

          The above poster said they saw it in northern California, so good chance it's at all locations.
          I know there will be detractors because it's a Costco cake, but I think they did a good job with this one. I've eaten a lot of red velvet cakes and this one is up there. It's not rocket science to make a good red velvet cake.

            could always call before going... just so temptation doesn't turn into disapointment... :)

          2. Hit the MdR/Culver City Costco this AM and they did have the Red Velvet cake there as well.

                My 17 yr. old daughter said it was better than Big Mista's, Jongewaards Bake & Broil and even Auntie Em's.

                    She's only had it at Auntie Em's three times so maybe they were off days.
                    Anyway I thought the Costco RVC was a good cake

                    Well that convinces me...
                    I'm going to go get one.
                    Thanks for the referral.
