Sweet Mother of Mary, do you see the thick layer of icing on top of this cake?? Last week I attended an event at the chic Hollywood club "My House." I happened to be bopping around a birthday girl's table when this glorious mass or red velvet cake arrived.
I simply had to have a slice (or 2) and the generous people at the table were more than willing to share (it pays to be the Dessert Darling
Turns out, the cake came from the infamous Sweet Lady Jane bakery, for which I gave a scathing cupcake review (see here). While I still stand by the fact that their cupcakes are bland disappointments, this red velvet cake begs a separate review.
Typical of Sweet Lady Jane's style, the icing wasn't too sweet, which worked out since there was so much of it. In short, the cream-cheese frosting was positively Edible. The cake itself was a bit cold and dry, clearly signs of refrigeration. We all agreed it was yummy cake, worthy of 3.5 cherries.
