And up-to-the-minute report on the best red velvet cupcakes in town.

Red Velvet Cupcakes at Alliance Bakery

OK, here goes volume 2 of the red velvet cupcake report. I read all kinds of great things about the RVC at Alliance Bakery in Wicker Park, but they just don’t hold a candle to the Goddess and Grocer. I found the cake a bit on the dry side and the cream cheese frosting had a strange sourness to it. I did dig the red sugar crystals added to the top and liked how you can unwrap them pretty easily. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Alliance for its retro bakery vibe and great sugar cookies, Key lime tarts and espresso drinks, but when it comes to RVC, the goddess still reigns. Anyone know of another RVC worthy of investigation?

Red velvet cupcake report volume 1

OK. I tried and tried and couldn’t get a decent photo of the red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting at Goddess and Grocer. As of now, they reign as the leading RVC in Chicago. Forget the photo, take advantage of the 15-minute loading zone and go out and get one for yourself. Their magnificence can’t be captured on film anyway. 1646 N. Damen Ave., 773.342.3200.
