I don’t know about you, but I’m an avid lover of all things red-velvet. To be honest, this dessert is just chocolate cake dyed red. But I truly believe that redder is better. From waffles to pancakes to cupcakes, red velvet is here to stay. Here are four places in the great city of Los Angeles to go to for your red velvet fix.
- Sprinkles Cupcakes
This is an L.A. staple. If you haven’t had Sprinkles cupcakes yet, I advise you to skip your afternoon class and make a trip to the king of all cupcakeries. When it comes to cupcakes, Sprinkles has it down: moist and fluffy cake topped with a sweet and tantalizing layer of cream cheese frosting. And if you make the trek to the Beverly Hills location, you can use the Cupcake ATM. Yes, this is an ATM machine for cupcakes. This location also offers a red velvet ice cream cupcake sandwich if you want the full red velvet experience.
