Best Red Velvet Cakes in KL

Written by Updated ago

Kuala Lumpur is the hub of some of the best deserts in Malaysia. We start from our humble beginning of what made some of us dessert geeks in the first place. That distinctive look, red, chocolate, cream and is just waiting to please you. Its dramatic bright red reminds you to stop in the midst of the city, look and have a bite.

    The Daily GrindPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Located right inside Bangsar Village Shopping Centre, (I know, the parking there can be horrendous) The Daily Grind first opened a few years ago and this gourmet burger diner has been taking Kuala Lumpur over by storm! Aside from their burgers, their Red Velvet cake has caught our attention. Its portion is huge and let me repeat, HUGE! It has four layers of cake together with four layers of frosting. Instead of the traditional cream cheese frosting, they use butter cream frosting but for the portion, it is worth your sweet tooth to bear!
    Tips

    Try to park at the basement parking lot beside the mall as Bangsar tends to be always crowded especially during peak hours

    Things to expect

    Juicy burgers!

    MukhaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    The café’s name ‘Mukha’ is predominantly Yemen-inspired and pretty much a secluded hipster joint for this part of town. Located behind the famous Artisan Roast, they have someone to compete against with too! Mukha has very decent cakes and coffees especially their Red Velvet cake. It’s a pretty large portion with more cake than cream cheese frosting (yummy!) and the frosting is not as sour. Besides that, the moist sweetness of the cake goes very well with a hot cuppa joe.
    Tips

    Go on rainy days, there’ll be less parking dilemmas especially during peak hours

    Things to expect

    Hipsters & good coffee

    Flat White & Mars Cheese Cake

    HarrodsPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Savour the taste of the most original English tea together with its cakes, pastries and miniature desserts (small but delectable!) that are just right for a fulfilling pleasure of the many tea time selections in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Officially launched in the year 2009 by former Prime Minister, Y. A Bhg Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Famous for their English inspired spread and design, Harrods is also popular for their minute desserts such as their red velvet cupcake. Bite-sized and moist, the mini cupcake is sweet and the cream cheese frosting on top is a little sour but nonetheless, both flavours complement each other really well!
    Tips

    Try to take a picture with the large Harrods bear at the entrance!

    Things to expect

    Peaceful environment, cute miniature desserts & cakes

    Swich CafePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    With two outlets to choose from, Swich Café is both available at HP Towers Semantan and also at Publika Shopping Gallery. Swich Café has a lot of interesting varieties of cakes to choose from; Mangosteen cake, Burn Sugar cake and also their famous Red Velvet. It has a light hint of cocoa, but not enough to call it a chocolate cake. Its cream cheese frosting is thick and sweet. Those who fancy orange peel are in luck as their Red Velvet has a little zest of orange peel in the frosting.
    Tips

    By late afternoon, their kitchen will be “semi-closed” so drop by in the evening if you just want some sweet cakes, desserts and coffee

    If you’re looking for a place to chill after work or have happy hour with colleagues and friends, Mulberry Restaurant is the place to go to. Located at Jalan Ampang in Kuala Lumpur, the Charlie Chaplin inspired restaurant is a cosy hang out spot that also has a bar at the side. Christmas is coming and so is their Red Velvet cake. It’s special because instead of just a regular moist and sweet cake, it is also paired with apricot crème cheese and fruits such as red grapes, blueberries and mulberries at the side. Sugar high is what you’re going to get after consuming this one of a kind Red Velvet cake!

    Marmalade CafePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    The Marmalade Café has two locations; Bangsar Village and Solaris Dutamas. As transparent as its name, the interior of the café is a warm tinge of yellow, just like marmalade. Even the lamps and sofa seating are yellow! There also a few choices of vegetarian dishes for those who opt for it. Its Red Velvet has two layers of thick cake and also a very dense portion of cream cheese in the middle. Sweet and satisfying!
    Tips

    It’s a cute place for baby shower parties!

    The ApartmentPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Strategically located at Suria KLCC and The Curve, The Apartment is warm and welcoming combined with comfortable yet modern interior design. With the delightful aromas of food and coffee in the air with holiday music playing in the background, The Apartment is a great place to come with family and loved ones to wind down and relax. Their Red Velvet cake is proportionately well with equal amount of moist cake and cream cheese frosting. Other than that, it is also pleasing to the eye. With a dash of thick strawberry sauce on top and a drizzle of chocolate sauce at the bottom, it’s hard to concentrate on which part you should start eating first!
    Tips

    If you have children, they are eligible for a free meal with an order of a main dish!

    Espressamente IllyPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Espressamente Illy has conquered the world by its sumptuous coffees. It is found by Francesco Illy dating back from 1933. 230 cafés in 34 countries worldwide later, Espressamente Illy finally has a store on its own in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. Although their coffee always makes me salivate, their Red Velvet cake is a bit under par for me. The cream cheese frosting is a bit hard and the cake is slightly too sweet. Decoration wise, it’s fantastic. Pair it with an Illy coffee, it is actually not a bad investment for the stomach.
    Tips

    Their Tiramisu is wonderful!

    Things to expect

    Only one official outlet at Pavilion, others are rather small kiosks

    Just HeavenlyPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    After a long day, a slice of heaven from Just Heavenly will do the trick. Located at Bangsar Shopping Centre, their outlet is modern painted white, airy and spacious – just how I think heaven should look like! The Red Velvet cake is also pretty unique. Other Red Velvet cakes would have a tinge of cocoa flavouring in their cakes but not Just Heavenly. Instead of cocoa flavouring, they use rose-tinted chiffon as their cake with light whipped cream cheese on top. It is light and fluffy to the taste buds!
    Tips

    Order extra because you’ll want more

    Fast and efficient service!
