Cakeman Raven


Dear friends, do you know what that is?


This is a $6 slice of Red Velvet cake.


This is a $6 slice of Red Velvet cake with walnuts. 


Oh, my.


Is that not gorgeous? 

A friend of mine (BB, for those keeping score at home – YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!) just moved very close to Cakeman Raven, so when BF and I went to her housewarming party, I had to swing by and grab a slice of cake or two and introduce the BF to the joys and wonders of the Cakeman.  Moist but light, super rich in flavor, amazingly fluffy cream cheese frosting that isn’t cloyingly sweet, and just… fabulous.  This is my favorite Red Velvet and I can’t even imagine what could make it better.  WOW. 

Yvo says: It took me a few days to eat each slice so $6 really isn’t that much to pay for a HUGE slice of cake – especially when this will easily be the best slice of Red Velvet you’ll ever eat (until the next one you eat, of course).  Mmm, I wish I had a slice right now… Oh, did I mention they actually also ship all over the country?  So all my non-NYer fans… you can eat this too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow, either we have completely different tastes in food (which I somewhat doubt) or I had a fluke slice of cake. Two friends and I went there last Saturday, after going to the Brooklyn Flea. Our cake was so overly dry, incredibly sweet frosting, no real flavor in either cake or frosting. We’re all dessert fiends and we didn’t WANT to finish the slice.

    SO good. My friend makes the cupcakes from his cookbook and they are ALWAYS moist and delicious…never dry and crumbly. YUM. Now I want to make a trip out there—good thing it’s raining too hard for me to bother. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That’s been on my food to do list for a couple years. Looks so yummy I might just pay a visit sooner rather than later.
