Helm's Truck Tea Cakes - Remember?

I used to get these in North Hollywood as a child when the Helm's truck came around to our neighborhood. They were square and had a lite icing on them. Does anyone know anywhere I can get them in OC?

  1. Not in OC, but if you are ever in Glendale, they have them at Billy's Deli on Orange.

    1. If you're ever back near North Hollywood, check out Martino's Bakery in Burbank.

        Yes the Helm's truck got those tea cakes from Martino's. At the time it was more of a comercial bakery. Then it closed and some of the employees purchased the right to the name and opened a smaller consumer bakery.

          Thank you so much for the info. I went there last week and bought one of those tea cakes and it was like eating a little piece of nostalgia. Thank you!

        2. i had a very nice russian tea cake at milk on beverly. i think they were 50 or 75 cents each.

          and i just had a nice homemade one at a dinner party on saturday!
