The best place for dessert is the Bubble Room. It's a restaurant in Captiva Island, Florida and they used to have a place near Orlando. All their cakes are triple layers and fabulous. Check out the best red velvet cake ever there. I was lucky enough to get the recipe. Don't pass up this place.

      I replied in another section, but am going to here also for hopes that you will get this request quickly! :)
      Can you share the recipe for this cake w/me?? I have gone crazy looking for it! My niece loves this cake from this restaurant, and I want to make the cake for her 18th B.Day. It's all she has talked about for months. Wanting the Bubble Rooms Red Velvet cake for her Birthday! I tried others and they don't compare..all too dry, not enough flavor, etc.
      I would SOOOO much appreciate it!
      Thank you!!!

        While I've enjoyed a number of quite memorable desserts in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and the like, the BEST I've ever had was Chef Dale Reitzer's (http://topchefs.chef2chef.net/recipes-2/reitzer/#Recipes) unbelievable Banana Creme Brulee at Richmond, Virginia's superb Acacia restaurant in that city's Carytown section. In 1999, Reitzer was named one of Food & Wine magazine's "Best New Chefs in America."

        Judging by this dessert alone, well deserved !!

          I have enjoyed the desserts at the "Bubble Room" on Captiva many times. I posted earlier on a request for where to eat in that region. The reports from the indiviual that had ask reported very favorable.

              SO FAR--i'd have to rate bread puddings from at least 8 different places in NOLA as the best desserts i ever BOUGHT,(its all that wonderful bread that the local bakeries supply, that MUST be eaten quick because it get stale fast), However i too have a major love of red velvet cake and wish dearly that you would post that recipe.Please pleaseUsed to get one from a Baker in Bloomington Indiana that has since died before i got the recipe. As for my all time favorite----my grandmothers fig pudding! (recipe posted here somewhere}Simple--easy---rich---and sooooooo gooooood!!!

                We've eaten at the Bubble Room a number of times. I've tried their desserts. I have the STRONG impression that their cakes aren't made "from scratch" at all, but rather come from just a regular old store-bought mix that's been doctored up a bit. I think there's a cookbook out there (can't remember its name) that deals with altering cake mixes and such. Maybe that cookbook would have what you're looking for. Good luck to you!
