Red Velvet Cake - Charleston, SC

chrismann219 Aug 5, 2010 05:57 AM

I am heading to Folly Beach, SC for a family vacation next week. While there we will be celebrating my wife's birthday. Her favorite cake is Red Velvet! Does anyone know where I can buy a real deal low country Red Velvet cake? Not looking for fancy with twist, just a good ole Red Velvet Cake? Many Thanks

    Any of the bakeries in the local grocery stores will be able to make you a red velvet cake.

      Try calling the village bakery in mt pleasant. They are a part of the mustard seed collection of restaurants where we have had a red velvet cake before. They may be able to accommodate you?

          Ummm, yum, yum! I agree with Sue and 4. I love the Red Velvet cake from Sal's restaurants. I think it is my favorite Red Velvet cake anywhere.

          We had Pampered Palalte make out Red Velvet wedding cake and it was out of this world! It is a tiny shop on Ashley River Road.

            I've never heard of Red Velvet Cakes and Confections so I'm afraid I'm of no help there. I do, however, know there is a bakery on Folly Road in James Island called The Cake Stand. I'm not sure how their Red Velvet Cake stands up, but it is convenient for you. Also, there is a Publix on Folly Road and they can make a decent cake.

              I heard of a place called Red Velvet Cakes and Confections but don't know if they still in business. Anyone?
