It’s perhaps the ultimate sweet treat. Let’s face it—with a deep red colour and flavours of chocolate, vanilla and cream cheese—red velvet has all the good stuff. It’s also a little bit romantic… we certainly feel the love when we stand at our kitchen counter and dig into an entire cake with a fork. And now we can thank the dessert gods, because Perth has not only perfected the classic, but also taken it a step further to serve up all kinds of red velvet delights.
Here's where to get Perth's best red velvet everything!
Red Velvet Croissants | La Belle Sweets
We’d happily learn French if it meant we could eat more of these red velvet croissants. Luckily, we don't have to, because the talented chefs at the family owned La Belle Sweets patisserie craft these croissants by hand and boy, they are pretty. Bon appétit!
Red Velvet Pancakes | Little H
While we’d never discourage you from eating cake for breakfast, we think a stack of red velvet pancakes with berries at Little H is the perfect dish to kick start your morning. Ordering a coffee from this Duncraig gem is compulsory.
Red Velvet Cupcakes | The Little Bakery
If you can’t go past the classic cake (and why should you?) then these red velvet cupcakes from The Little Bakery will tick all the right boxes. Tuck into this deep red velvet cake, with a light taste of chocolate and the all important cream cheese vanilla frosting. Like anything good, they also come in miniature.
Red Velvet Cake | Sherbet Cafe
This is it. The cake that will keep you awake at night. With three layers of ruby red butter cake and Madagascan vanilla bean cream cheese icing this cake from Sherbet is the real deal. Salivating? So are we. You can order an entire cake if you have a special occasion (or if you’re up for a challenge).
Red Velvet Cake | Mary Street Bakery
Highgate, West Leederville and Perth CBD
Is any list of baked goods complete without a Mary Street Bakery inclusion? This no fuss, red velvet cake is layered with cream cheese icing and topped with a red velvet crumb. You can find it at all of their locations.
Red Velvet Brownie | Ox and Rabbit
This is the ultimate indulgence. A red velvet brownie topped with a white chocolate ganache and raspberry crumb. Ox and Rabbit also gets bonus points for making this gluten free. Just don’t wear white—this one might get messy.
Red Velvet Cheesecake | Garnished
This newly renovated artisan dessert bar is serving up red velvet to suit all tastes. If you’re like us, and cheesecake is life, then the red velvet cheesecake gateau will make you very happy. Cake enthusiasts of the vegan variety (or any cake enthusiasts for that matter) will love the beetroot red velvet cake.
Red Velvet Cake | The Flour Press
A red velvet cake from The Flour Press will make a special day extra sweet. These made-to-order beauties are simply stunning and topped with customised floral creations. Perfect for weddings and birthdays, these masterpieces taste just as good as they look.
Red Velvet Doughnut | Carina’s Kitchen
Markets across Perth
This talented baker has taken two of our fave desserts to create one seriously delicious morsel. These red velvet doughnuts are filled with vanilla bean custard and topped with raspberry sauce. Yep, these tasty creations are pretty much revolutionary. They’re also vegan—which we’re taking as permission to eat three at once. Find them at markets across Perth.
