Bakery in Cerritos/Lakewood area
Paris Baguette in Cerritos! I went there over the weekend and just fell in love with it. There are also locations in K-Town, which have been commented upon by other 'Hounds. The bakery serves more sweet and savory pastries than I could count, and (this is the best part) a plethora of free samples. They also have whole, delicious looking cakes for sale.

I purchase my cakes from a bakery in Downey ... Cakeland Gallery ... the owner was trained at Rosebud bakery in Beverly Hills ... then opened his own place on Paramount Blvd. It helps to be bilingual if you need to special-order something ... but i generally just get something that is already in the case ...be forewarned though ... the place is nothing fancy ... but the cakes are good. Actually my birthday is on the 22nd and i've asked my husband to order the Red Velvet for my special day ...
