      thanks, what does tres leches mean?

      1. re: compulsiveEater

        3 milks... It's a rather "wet" cake that's not overly sweet. Very Cuban.

          thanks! i was thinking king's hawaiian, which she loves. but maybe something new and better?

      2. I'm particularly fond of the Berry Blossom @ Susina Bakery & Red Velvet at Doughboys.

          Second the Berry Blossom at Susina Bakery, or their Lemon Raspberry Dream. The latter is the cake I got for my BF's 30th- everyone loved it.

          1. re: AquaW

            Susina Bakery is absolutely wonderful. They make wonderful cakes. I also think the cakes at Lark Cake Shop in Silver Lake are quite pretty, though I've only gotten the smaller cupcakes so far.

              Second this recommendation. The only cake I would not get at Susina is chocolate IF you like very dense, intensely flavored chocolate cakes. All their cakes, including chocolate, are lightly flavored and very fluffy.

            2. Just had some birthday cake from Katella Deli this weekend. Chocolate with chocolate bavarian filling, and whipped cream icing. Amazing! So moist...

                Black Forest Bakery in Lake Forest (near Dana Point) did my daughter's wedding cake in Sept. and it was very good. Had a tangy lemon, and cheese filling I think.

                1. The Berry Blossom cake at Alcove is to die for.
