I have had Sprinkles Red Velvet cupcakes and while they were good, they are not the best in the Dallas area. There is a small bakery on Main St. in Grapevine called Patty Cakes that makes both Red Velvet cupcakes and cakeballs that is by far the best Red Velvet cupcakes I have ever tasted.
Best Red Velvet Cupcake - 2009
Red velvet is the best kind of cake ever—and not because of the 1989 appearance of the armadillo-shaped groom's cake in the film Steel Magnolias. There's something about the cacao-tinged flavor and the rich sweetness of the creamy frosting that's absolutely irreplaceable. Which is why you'd expect a high-quality red velvet cupcake at a high-quality cupcakery like Sprinkles. The bakers there—with their fancy-schmancy designs and pretty accoutrements—know just how to do the Southern specialty right. The taste of their delicious, deep red confections is tough to put into words, but suffice it to say that the Steel Magnolia set would certainly approve.
