Let Them Eat Cake, Costa Mesa--Wow! (review)

This place has always caught my eye, but I have never had the time to stop in. Today I purchased their Five-Chocolate Decadence Cookie. When I bit into it, the chocolate was still warm and oozed out--absolutely divine. The ingredients are obviously top quality. The other treat I tried was the Brown Betty Muffin, which was moist, substantial in weight, and beautifully spiced.

To my surprise, these treats were far superior to those of the other bakeries I have visited recently, namely; Sweet Lady Jane, Europane, and Joan's on Third.

Perhaps the items I purchased at LTEC were their "stand-outs". But, I did purchase at least 10 items at the other bakeries and none was as good at the two I tasted today, go figure! (And, it's located in OC!!).

P.S. Their cakes are whimsical, ala McKenzie-Childs.
