Red Velvet Cupcakes and Cookies in Los Angeles
Forget Cakes: Red Velvet Cookies, Pancakes, and Truffles For V-Day
Offer me a slice of red velvet cake any time of year, and I won't refuse it. But offer me the buttermilk dessert during the month of love, and the vivid red color is especially delightful. Standard red velvet cakes and cupcakes are aplenty, but let's indulge in red velvet in the form of pancakes, cookies, truffles, and ice cream toppings. You don't need to be romantically linked to savor some rich, velvety goodness from these four sweet spots.
- Spice up your cookie craving with the red velvet cookie from Sweets Truck. Track the truck on Twitter and be sure to get the regular size; the mini is cute but disappears too quickly.
- Yummy Cupcakes (locations in Burbank, Brentwood, and Santa Monica) has major love for the flavor. Besides red velvet cupcakes and cakes, it offers red velvet truffles and red velvet cupcakes with cocoa cream cheese frosting.
- Simultaneously fiending for red velvet and frozen treats? Head to actress Melissa Joan Hart's place, Sweet Harts (13704 Ventura Blvd., 818-788-5004), in Sherman Oaks. The red velvet cake topping melts perfectly over the cable car chocolate ice cream.
- The Buttermilk Truck (@ButtermilkTruck) is your go-to stop for red velvet chocolate chip pancake bites topped with butter and syrup. Order six for $4 and eat them while they're hot.
