Need Petit Fours/Pretty Dessert Platter

Jessica Ritz | Jan 3, 2005 06:49 PM

I'm hosting a baby shower this Saturday and don’t have enough time to make all the desserts. I called Picholine on 1st St. since their stuff should fit the bill, but the place is now closed on weekends. I won't be picking it up myself yet I refuse to send some other poor soul into the Third Street weekend traffic inferno to fetch goodies from Joan’s.

Thinking a combo of Canter's or Pano's on H'wood might suffice, yet I'd prefer something a little daintier to make up a nice platter. Maybe Sugar Plum on Beverly, or Friday’s sweets from Picholine will still be fresh enough to serve the following afternoon?

Suggestions of other bakeries/cafes in the Hollywood area (generally east of Fairfax) that make pretty and tasty petit fours, cookies, small-ish brownies, lemon bars, etc. are most welcome.
