    Its all about the Sassy Sistah! Vanilla/red velvet/chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and chocolate buttercream. So moist, great density, and fine crumb. Tastes like homemade

    Did you know... 'That Takes The Cake' delivers (via postmates). The Red Velvet cupcake is the BEST!

    That Takes the Cake, in the Marina, uses a traditional recipe for their red velvets, not dyed white cake batter like some shops.

    My wife's creations so i'm biased but they are damn good. Try anything with chocolate frosting but the bunny bite is my all time favorite.
