Wedding cakes and great catering for the big day
Who does terrific wedding cakes in LA? I have in mind the sort of old fashioned yellow cake with buttercream frosting that they serve at the Cupcake Cafe in NYC, decorated with buttercream roses.
Also, any suggestions for caterers that can put together a memorable meal that I won't need a second mortgage to finance?
Eeek, I've mentioned these before, but:
Sweet Lady Jane on Melrose
Cake Collection in West L.A. (this is where I got my cake and it was AMAZING - moist, delicious - but I'm not sure if they're still around)
Fantasy Frostings is supposed to be the best wedding cake in the city.
I suggest you taste them all first - yum!
Also, Gai Klass may break your catering budget, but she can do just about anything deliciously and with class. She's in Culver City, I believe.
I used a *marvelous* caterer for my wedding - dependable, affordable and fun. Her name is Danielle Hewitt and she is at 818-846-1044 or firstname.lastname@example.org
She has a huge menu selection, and everything we chose was really yummy and beautiful. She also helped out by booking the furniture rental for me (I had an outdoor wedding).
I love Hansen's Cakes. The cakes look great and taste wonderful. I'm not sure if they make a yellow cake. I've always gone to the location on Fairfax (south of Olympic), but I believe they also have a location in Beverly Hills and another in the Valley.
I've never had one of their cakes, but I have also heard that a place called Fantasy Frostings in Whittier makes gorgeous cakes.
Hope that helps!
Hansens's the most well known for cakes in LA. Do go to their BH or Valley store. Don't go to the one on Fairfax, it's a dump.
We got our cake at a place called Regal Cake Gallery, which is next door to Hansens. It was amazing and beautiful. If you want, I will email you a photo of it. It was a lemon cake with raspberry filling. We intended on getting the cake from Hansens but were so disgusted when we walked in there that we left. Regal just happened to be next door and uncrowded. We also did tastings at a place in the Valley called Helen Worth. Very impressive, but they sort of moaned about having to deliver to MDR on Sunday, so screw them, we thought.
