Alpine Bakery in Alpharetta is our pick for the area's best red velvet cake. Photo courtesy Alpine Bakery.

AJC Food and More Southern and neighborhood fare blogger Jenny Turknett says, “This Alpharetta spot has an undiscovered gem: the red velvet cake. Stacked four layers high and dusted with red velvet crumbs, this cake is not only gorgeous but is incredibly moist.  The thick layers of cream cheese frosting – not overly sweet – are more like cheesecake than frosting.  This cake is my hands-down favorite red velvet cake around.”

Amazing Cakes on Mableton Pkwy. in Mableton — i think they’ve kidnapped a bunch of Southern moms & grannies, because they definitely have that homemade with a dash of something more taste!

Both the red velvet & key lime cupcakes will bring a happy tear to your eye.

Btw, Henri’s between Roswell Rd. & East Andrews is a French bakery… i don’t think he and Paula have established any common gene pools, yet! :-)

“Piece of Cake” has the best classic Red Velvet cake. It’s too bad several bakeries have closed. We were fortunate to have had them, their cakes, their owner’s “sweet sweat and dreams.” Go to your favorite bakery and enjoy their “sweet dreams.”

I have yet to find a real Red Velvet cake anywhere in Atlanta. I see a lot of the cakes but they have a cream cheese frosting on them. Real Red Velvet cake does NOT have a cream cheese frosting. The original cake has a very unique frosting, with one part requiring a cooked flour/milk mixture. Some lazy baker, however, started using cream cheese as a substitute but it is a very pale one.

Piece of Cake has nothing on Sweet Blessings…I tried them both and I am telling you Sweet Blessings is definitely made from scratch. The Red Velvet and Key Lime is the best of both worlds. For the holidays they have the Red Velvet and Key Lime with a layer of Chocolate in the middle. Wow and the potato chip cookies rock. Way to go Sweet Blessings! For the holidays you must order in advance because they are so busy! For anyone who is interested the number 770 981-0136…
