Cake for 25th Anniversary - this weekend
I'm looking for the best bakery in LA. It's my aunt and uncle's 25th wedding anniversary and I want to get them something really special to celebrate. They love anything with fresh fruit. Ideas please!
I love Jamaica's Cakes! She made the most delicious cake for my Aunt. Her pastries/cookies/other goodies are also to-die-for!

I just converted my friend's family from SLJ to Susina's Berry Blossom cake. Basically, if you want cakes a little less sweet and lighter/fluffier, try Susina. It's also cheaper for the same size, and there are smaller and larger sizes to choose among to better suit your needs each time. Staff is friendly as all get out, and my friend's dad commented that the fancy white gift box with ribbon was much more presentable than normal flimsy bakery boxes. The same dad ate a quarter of the 11" cake in one sitting. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is.
One of my favorite places to buy birthday cake is Diamond Bakery in Monterey Park. Always has the best selections of fresh fruit. The quality of the cake is also stellar. Since it is a Chinese bakery the cake tends to not be as sweet as more Westernized bakery. It's more light and fluffy with great fillings.. including pudding, mousse, etc. My favorite cake there is their mango cake. Sure to be hit! They also have incredible fruit tarts there.

How about a fresh fruit tart from Porto's? I see you're on short notice, and that's an item they have ready for walk-in business.
You might consider the fruit and cream cake from Susina. High quality and more reasonable than some other options, including SLJ. $35
