Red Velvet Traditional

Caroline’s Cakes ships its famous cakes nationwide on Goldbelly! Caroline’s Cakes’ version of this distinctive traditional Southern classic red velvet cake is made with four moist red velvet layers, which are iced and filled with cream cheese.

When Caroline Ragsdale Reutter served a Southern style 7-layer caramel cake made from an old family recipe at her son’s christening in 1982, little did she know she would soon find herself taking cake orders from as far away as Alaska. Today the Spartanburg, South Carolina, bakery is “Home of the World’s Best Caramel Cake,” baking flavors like chocolate bliss cake, Southern layer caramel cake, and tart coconut lemon cake. One bite of Caroline’s Cakes and you’ll agree Southern girls really do do it best!

I ordered the blueberry lemon cake for my husband’s birthday on the Fourth of July. The cake arrived the day before as scheduled and looking fabulous. Then we tried it the next day and OH MY GOODNESS was this cake amazing. So moist and bursting with fresh blueberries and lemon, even the frosting tasted of lemon. We have now found our new favorite cake, thank you so much!

The lemon blueberry cake was fantastic. It was not too sweet and it was very moist with the taste of lemon zest to compliment each bite.

It was delicious and being a Southerner, I do know what a caramel cake should taste like. I am sure this is the original recipe of caramelizing sugar to begin the process.

The cake was just as described: seven layers of chocolate "bliss!" It was a cake for my daughter-in-law's birthday. It arrived on the date requested and was packed so nothing would damage the cake. I especially appreciated that the cake was wrapped in cellophane so it was very easy to remove from the packaging. It was beautiful and delicious! I was very happy and pleased.

All of it. Ease of ordering, fast shipping and food that is out of this world. I will be using Goldbelly to everyone. In fact, Caroline's Cakes was the best cake I had ever had and let everyone on Facebook know. I have a friend that is actually going to drive up as she is just an hour away and bring some to her family and friends in AR.

I didn't know about this site. What a welcome! I was able to order the perfect cake for my husband's birthday while in quarantined...I liked that I was able to see when the cake would be delivered and was able to take care of the costs and communication via Goldbelly. Caroline's Cakes EXCEEDED my expectation! The carrot cake was the best I've ever tasted. The presentation in the tin box was exceptional. I will DEFINITELY order another cake from them via Goldbelly. I also like that you offer several other "above-the-average" restaurants and bakeries. I spend a lot of time reading reviews to have an idea of what I can expect. I ordered another cake a couple of weeks ago from a different source and that cake will be delivered today. We'll see how that one works out!
