Great Cakes of LA - Who's Gunna Take the Cake?

bulavinaka | May 22, 2010 09:52 PM

The topic of cakes seems to have come up more than once recently. Lots of folks chimed in about who's got the best chocolate cake in the Westside.

Poster Arthur wanted us to post about great red velvet cakes around LA. While still not convinced that red velvet could stand on its own, Arthur was impressed with SusieCakes' greatness at making cakes.

I've always been a fan of Jamaica's Cakes' chocolate cake that hits high notes for dark chocolate lovers. The depth of chocolate goodness is immeasurable.

Many have applauded SusieCakes for both their red velvet as well as their chocolate cake (and rightfully so - this place is a cake lover's paradise). Their Tropical Coconut cake is not to be missed as well. All of their cakes would baffle the best of architects as to how they could be so moist yet still stand on their own.

Angel Maid has been a long-time Westside favorite for their cakes so light that they could defy gravity. Throw some strawberries in and it's like walking on billowy clouds in the spring time.

I just ran into a tall dark beauty at Bite - four incredible layers of cake that are just left of pound cake slathered with four more layers of what I'm guessing is chocolate ganache. Oh. My. Bajesus. This was one amazing cake. One mack daddy of rich moist golden yellow cake with some serious back: super deep dark rich up-to-my-lips-in chocolate ganache. Sir Mix-A-Lot, bring it down with, "Baby Got Back."

If I had to choose one cake to have before going on a diet, this would be the one. A gigantic slice of cake heaven for less than five bucks. It wouldn't even fit in the box for me to take home. Shame on Elizabeth for making my gluttony so obvious to all of the other diners there. Oh heck, I ain't proud! ;)

Cakes, cakes, who's got the best of cakes?
