10 Best Red Velvet Cakes in KL & PJ
Red Velvet, Cake, KL, PJ
Of late, red velvet cakes have been really hot among Malaysians. Unfortunately, many places serving red velvet cake has gotten the texture and taste wrong in Malaysia. A good red velvet cake should be soft, dense, moist, yet fluffy in texture. Taste-wise, it should resemble a buttermilk cake and just contain a faint trace of cocoa. Most would prefer pairing red velvet cakes with cream cheese frosting. However, those who do not favour cheese flavours would prefer renditions with buttercream frosting. (The restaurants are arranged in no particular order. Some of the establishments below are not halal.)
