Today I had the need to order a birthday cake for someone special. Living on the Westside I have a few choices that definitely live up to the hype they've created. I've also have found myself, lately, feeling that some of the cakes I've ordered are just a little too sweet for my taste.
I decided to drive the distance to one of my old favorites....Phoenix Bakery in the heart of a bustling and busy Chinatown.
The service is wonderful, the young lady behind the counter was delightful and helpful and that cake...wow. The light, yet slightly dense spongecake with whipped cream and strawberries. It does not get better.
Does anyone else love this place like I do?
