Red Velvet Cake Hunt! What's the best bakery for a red velvet wedding cake?

marzipanda | Sep 20, 2011 04:21 PM

Ugh, so my plans on using Cake Man Raven fell through; I kept going into the CMR shop to make an order for a (VERY simple, no decorations) tiered red velvet cake for 100 people, and the teenagers at the shop kept saying to come in when Cake Man was around. They never knew when he'd stop by, of course, and I should have taken this as a sign to move on... but I REALLY REALLY wanted CMR to make our wedding cake. Today the poor kid at the cash register told me to look elsewhere, as apparently dozens of upset customers were canceling their big orders.

So I need a backup. Ideally I'd love a local Brooklyn bakery with a solid reputation for old school red velvet cakes with cream cheese frosting. Manhattan is OK too, if BK can't come through.

I'm not considering Two Red Hens at the moment because they don't do stacking, and I was hoping for a tiered round cake.
