My sister's birthday is Aug. 2, and I want to order a delicious (NOT too sweet) birthday cake for her birthday party. My budget is around $25 ($30 is ok). Does anyone know a good place in West L.A.?

Thanks in advance!

    Thank goodness for this thread.

    I forgot to order my son's birthday cake - his party is in three days and he wants Star Wars. What kind of mother forgets to order a cake for her son's sixth birthday party?

    But I thought to check the boards and you came through!

    I called Angel Maid Bakery, and will have a Darth Vader cake by Sunday. Thanks everyone! I will let you know how it was.

        I love good cake, but for something different you might think about an ice cream cake.

          I second Angel Maid. They make a good chocolate mousse cake that's not too sweet. It's on Centinela near Culver and Centinela.

            I second Susina - their chocolate bear cake was a huge hit at my birthday party - very light, not too sweet.

              How many in the birthday party? Susina's Bakery make excellent not-too-sweet birthday cakes -- though may be pushing on your budget depending on cake size ($25 for 7", serves 6, $35 for 9", serves up to 10).

              My fave is the Berry Blossom (vanilla sponge brushed with orange liqueur, with fresh berries, white choc. mousse, and meringue crumbles,) but I don't think you can go wrong with any of their choices.

                Mousse Fantasy cake shop on Sawtelle makes really great not too sweet cakes. In fact, since their pastries are geared towards an asian palette all their cakes are not too sweet and really delicious. they now share a space with beard papa so it's a bit confusing but they're still there.

                  We just has a beautiful Yellow cake with buttercream frosting from Bluebird Bakery in Culver City.

                  a few folks I know consider Bluebird the best cake that seems homemade they have ever had.

                    I was presented with the red velvet/cream cheese frosting cake from Bluebird. Ohhhhh soooo goooood. So incredibly moist, and decadant but not too decadant cream cheese frosting. But I'm pretty sure that cake runs above the $30 budget.
