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

-Red Velvet Cake at Doughboys
-Pastries by Edie in Canoga Park
-Porto's Tres Leches cake (awesome!)... pick up some potato balls while you're there (yum!)
-Chocolate Fudge Cake at Grand Lux Cafe
-Victor Benes Cakes (we've had these at my work and they've all been quite good)
Closer to OC: King's Hawaiian's Paradise Cake. Three colorful layers: guava, lime, and passionfruit. The flavors are very light. Without knowing, I would have just thought it was light fluffy "fruity" cake with a very thin layer of whipped cream and a gooey layer of tart passionfruit curd. $15 for an 8", which was enough for the 8 of us to eat after dinner and still have 2/3 of the cake left! One of the most interesting and tasty cakes I've had in LA, and definitely the cheapest.
I like Porto's but it's much too sweet for me. Same for Doughboy's.
Susina is great for people who don't like things overly sweet.
Just my 8 cents...
Hansen's White Chocolate with Raspberry and Buttercream
Plusko's Chocolate Chip Cake w/ Vanilla Custard Filling
Viktor Benes' Chocolate Parisian
Almost anything from Leda's
I was doing a little cake shopping myself and bookmarked some places.

Jin Patisserie! Jin Patisserie all the way! (in Venice) The Spring Bouquet has been my birthday cake two years in a row and will be three in 2 months! Mangoes, Strawberries, in cream inside a layer of meringue *drool* and they do have other awesome cakes. The Poire, for example. And then they had this new one last time that I didn't get the name of :(
And then I do love Porto's in Glendale. It's cheaper but still the cakes there are still so so tasty.
