No, it’s not just food colouring, these red velvet desserts are serious dessert {and Instagram} goals!

Red Velvet Cupcake At 8th Day Cafe

8th Day Café does a classic version of red velvet with a perfectly delicate and uncomplicated version of our favourite dessert. At just INR 79, it comes with cream cheese frosting which is light on the stomach. They also take red velvet love to a whole new level – you have to try the giant-size creamy red velvet shake from their newly-introduced milkshake menu.

Red Velvet Cheesecake And Milkshake At Paris Café

The three-layered red velvet cheese cake is meticulously put together and comes with a marbled top with edible white flowers. The single slice comes at north of INR 200. They also do a thick creamy shake that captures the essence of red velvet. At INR 270 for a tall glass, it’s extremely satisfying and filling.

Red Velvet Waffles At Piccadilly Square

Fluffy and velvety smooth, Piccadilly Square serves red velvet waffles which cost approximately INR 200. The waffles come with cream cheese dressing. They can be a little dense so make sure you have enough place in your belly. This European-themed vegetarian café bistro has a chic vibe {we love the unique 3D art detailing on the wall}.

Red Velvet Cream Cheese Eclair At Rouge

Even though Rouge is known for ‘Rouge’ {its famous red velvet and cream cheese cupcake}, they also do a mean éclair version. This choux pastry dessert is light and airy – exactly how you would imagine a perfect éclair to be with all the magical goodness of red velvet. Each piece burns an INR 100 size hole through your pocket. The éclair also comes as part of their Rakhi pack if you want to gift it to your sibling.

Red Velvet Brownie At H Street Baker

Kolkata may not have Theobroma yet {someone really needs to work on making that happen!}, but we do have H Street Baker. Pre-order red velvet brownies from this home baker and you won’t be disappointed. At INR 300 for six pieces, they are an absolute steal. The crispy outer layer, gooey centre, velvety texture – they nail everything you look for in a brownie.
