Let Them Eat (Red Velvet) Cake


Make text smaller Make text larger




If you live in Brooklyn and haven’t adopted some sugar-free (or vegan) diet, then you should have heard of [Cake Man Raven] and his famous red velvet cake.  Well, he wants you loyal sweet fiends to know he appreciates your business and this Sunday the Fort Greene shop will host Eighth Annual Family & Friends Appreciation Day. Get ready for a cupcake parade at 3 p.m. and live music on the festival stage at 4 p.m. (located at South Oxford and Hanson Place).  The Cake Man has promised stilt walkers, marching bands, giant slides and the possible celebrity cameo (maybe one of the famous people who love his cake like Patti LaBelle or Spike Lee will appear).


Originally from Harlem, Raven Patrick De'Sean Dennis III, got his nickname when a reporter referred to him as “Harlem Cake Man Raven” in 1991.  The title stuck and followed him all the way to Brooklyn where I have heard people ask in an excited tone as they point to the red cake with white creamy icing, “Is that from Cake Man Raven?”  And a lot of the time, it is.


Sun. July 20, 3 p.m., 708 Fulton Street (at Greene Ave.) 718-694-2253
