Need a cake that just screams...January

esculent | Jan 24, 2007 02:23 PM

I've done it to myself. Every month, our office hosts a birthday party for the employees and rather than do the same old thing, I'm trying to find interesting cake options per month. The office is located in Mid-Wilshire and I live in the same area, so no recs from delicious bakeries in the valley, santa monica, downtown, or glendale will do. I need a place that will deliver, or won't give me anxiety attacks to drive there (not easily done in west hollywood).

Anyway, it's the end of January and I'm totally stumped, so I need the 'hounds help! The budget's pretty flexible, by the way.

Cakes we've done so far:

Triple Berry - Sweet Lady Jane
Flower Basket (marble cake with choc choc chips) - Hansen's
Chocolate Bear Cake - Susina
Buche de Noel - Susina
Chocolate chocolate cake - Bluebird Bakery

I'd love to introduce a new bakery, if possible, but definately want a new type of cake. I was thinking New York-style cheesecake, but where can I find enough for 40 people? Another possibility is a lemony or white cake.

Oh and, red velvet's out for this month (it will be February's cake).
