Leda's Bakery: Any tips?

two bites and i'm in love. i'm thinking about ordering about 80 mini-cupcakes for an upcoming party. i could use some advice. i've only been there twice and feel like a novice when it comes to ordering.
anyone order large quantities w/ them before?

1/3 of our guests will be children, so i figure i'd go the cupcake route for $120 vs. ordering a fancy cake. i want to display them on tiered platters and use them as table centerpieces. not sure if it'll fly. i've never seen this done before. anything you know about the place would be helpful! TIA!

  1. Well, here is their website for selection info:

    I do not like their buttercream frosting, and am thus not the person to ask as to which is best or any other personal discussions regarding product, but others have surely done so in the past, so you might also want to check the search function on the LA message board.

    1. for the kids, i'd definitely get a balance (or ask parents if they know if their kids prefer one flavor so you can get an estimate of numbers to order) of kids' vanilla, kids' chocolate chocolate, and strawberry flavors. for the adults, i recommend the coconut lime, dulce de leche, red velvet, passionfruit, pumpkin, and espresso.
