Lark Cake Shop in Silverlake

A heads up and wondering if anyone knows about the tiny Lark Cake Shop opening in Silverlake? It's on Sunset just a shade East of Micheltorena.
So small I have to believe they will not have a kitchen on site.

Has anyone been there? I stopped by today. I tried a couple free samples of mini cupcakes, and they seemed way too cold from the refrigerator, and were dried out as a result. I was wondering if anyone had liked (or disliked) what they tried.
I'm very jealous of Santa Monica people with the arrival of Vanilla Bake Shop, which sounds great, so I was very hopeful re Lark. So far, not sure what to make of it. Maybe they just need to turn the refrigerator case's temperature up.
I really wish I had something good to say, but sadly Lark disappointed me. I bought a couple cupcakes and was less than thrilled. I overheard who I assume is the owner say that it's good to leave the cakes out a bit before eating them. I did that, but the cake consistency was still dry and pretty flavorless. The icing wasn't bad, but they aren't too generous with it. Next time I need a cupcake I'm heading to Yummy Cupcakes in Burbank.
I stopped by Lark the other day, and the place was very cute. They did not have much in the case, but the cakes that they displayed were beautiful. I got the chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow inside (amazing!), and a huge slice of red velvet that I thought was going to cost me $30, but all together everything was less than $10. Very reasonable, considering other bakery prices. Give it a couple of weeks, and it will be superior
I sure hope it gets better. I bought 2 slices of cake - one red velvet and one chocolate mousse. Neither were good. The red velvet was extremely dry, and the chocolate mousse was rich but not delicious. My husband and I threw most of the slices away, and my friends who bought the same thing as I did had the same reaction. I'll try the chocolate with marshmallow filling later this week and hope for the best.
