My birthday was the other day and I dearly love Red Velvet Cake. So the birthday cake was this luscious creation from Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. I wasn’t sure how this would work out since it’s the heat of summer and the shop is several states away from me. But it did not disappoint!
The cake arrived frozen, packed in a styrofoam cooler and surrounded by dry ice. It came more quickly than we expected so it went into the freezer at home until 3 days before we were going to eat it. Those three days it lived in the fridge, and was taken out a few hours before lunch on the day.
Even after freezing, shipping and thawing, this cake was outstanding. The cake itself was soft and pillowy–like eating a cloud. And the cake didn’t taste of food coloring which a lot of bought Red Velvet cakes do. The frosting was a lightly sweet cream cheese that was smooth and creamy. It was decorated with crumbled cake on top and chopped pecans all around the bottom.
I’ve eaten Red Velvet cake made by many people from many bakeries and home kitchens and I think this might be the best one I’ve ever had. As a person who doesn’t tend to buy really expensive food items, it’s a pricy cake. But I feel it is worth every penny because the cake is so rich a little bit goes a long way!
Savannah’s Candy Kitchen is fast becoming one of my favorite places to get special treats. I’ve ordered two other items from them. The first was the Praline Cheesecake. It’s a creamy cheesecake with the perfect texture enrobed in a pecan praline shell. My word. The only thing that could possibly add to this cheesecake would be chocolate, but that might be overkill to be honest! As with the cake, a tiny piece went a long long way!
The other thing I ordered from them was a box of Pecan Logs. I love these things and they’re getting harder and harder to find in stores. And the ones I do find are small and the nougat inside leaves something to be desired. But not these! Oh no. The five rolls in the box each weigh 7 ounces. The nougat is soft and pillowy with a nice vanilla flavor. The caramel is creamy and the pecans are perfectly fresh.
I’m not an affiliate or anything for Savannah’s Candy Kitchen but I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a special treat for an occasion or for themselves! I shared the birthday cake but I didn’t share the other things. Not sorry!
