Red Velvet Cheesecake
Im having a holiday dinner with friends tomorrow and everyone is bringing a dish or some sort of addition to dinner. I want to bring dessert, so I thought red velvet cheescake would be delicious. Any ideas where I can find one in Orange County, particularly near Costa mesa or Irvine.
Magnolia Bakery on 3rd has it although I don't remember what the crust is.
That said, I've never had a red velvet cheesecake that I thought was better than a regular cheesecake. I feel like the "red velvet" flavor doesn't really work when it's not in cake. There's a reason you don't really see that flavor showing up in other types of desserts.
Scoops has amazing red velvet ice cream but it's basically just chunks of red velvet cake in cream cheese flavored ice cream.
