“Taste of Summer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Grabbed 2 cupcakes to save for a late night treat from this small storefront. One was a creamsicle-inspired cupcake and the other was lemony with coconut. The cakes had good texture and the frostings were delicious!

“Excellent Cupcakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

The cupcakes at Red Velvet will not disappoint. They are a bit on the pricey side however their taste will make you forget that you paid almost $4 for 1 cupcake. My boyfriend and I always skip dessert when eating out if a Red Velvet is nearby to ensure we stop in there after our dinner and enjoy a cupcake. The chocolate peanut butter is my favorite - the frosting is delicious and the cake is always moist and full of flavor.

We stopped for cupcakes after our meal at Carmines. We each had a different treat and a good taste experience was enjoyed by all.

“Wonderful Cupcakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

The cupcake place is very small--don't miss it! The cupcakes are outstanding! Our group had an assortment and all the cupcakes were so flavorful!
