Is there some place in LA that will alter my opinion of Red Velvet Cake?

Arthur | May 10, 2010 01:05 PM

I'm looking for the definitive, best-tasting slice of red velvet cake in Los Angeles (preferably on the westside). I am on this quest because, frankly, I have yet to sample a red velvet cake that has lived up to any of the hype. All over this site and elsewhere I've seen people swooning over this decades-old, now-trendy confection. Yet every single version I've tasted has been an expectations-deflating disappointment, striking me as nothing more than a dyed devil's food cake with cream cheese frosting. I like frosted cake as much as anybody, but is that really all there is to it? Is all the fuss simply about the pretty, unconventional coloring? Or can my fellow dessert-loving Chowhounds direct me to a local version that might change my impression forever?
