Okay I posted something before about mini-cheese cakes now I am in the need of all mini desserts. I am having a baby shower with a sweet beginings theme and I am looking for a great bakery in the Los Angeles area with mini desserts I tried Vanilla but was not too fond of them. I will be truly greatful for your ideas.

    The bakery at the newer Whole Foods Markets like Pasadena, PCH and Tustin all have mini, one bite desserts that look fabulous.

        Not exactly Los Angeles, but Katella Deli will do mini versions of everything if you order in advance, plus they deliver. We had some dessert catering at work about 6 months ago and we had mini...

        cheesecake slices
        napoleons
        eclairs
        black and white cookies

        etc...

          Natas in Sherman Oaks (Ventura Blvd. & Fulton) for a range of delicious Portuguese pastries in both regular and mini (bite-size) sizes.

            Thought Costco's freezer and bakery sections had a few mini sweet items.

              la Maison du Pain (on Pico & Ridgeley) does some mini-pastries, if you order in advance. They usually have a few ones in the case at the right of the counter (mini fruit tarts, mini chocolate cakes, etc.).
              Also, I've been at an event last week where Susina was catering some mini-tarts and some mini-peanut butter "cups" (no idea what they were called) that were awesome and light.

                  check out Caprice on Pico near (maybe in) Santa Monica. We got wonderful mini desserts there for a party we had before our wedding.
