Need thank you goodies rec in valley

sherpa50 Jun 5, 2008 12:38 PM


I want to send someone a thank-you goodie basket (or just one special cake or ???) & would like some valley recommendations since his office is in Burbank. My first choice was the red velvet cake from Buttercake Bakery but the delivery charge was $30 - same amount as the cake itself.

He's from New Orleans & loves sweets (esp chocolate). I want to spend about $50 (inc delivery charge), but will go higher for something especially nice.

    Try the Big Sugar Bakeshop in Studio City - they have a website and are absolutely delicious!!

      I second the Snookies recommendation. They are right in Burbank and have a great selection of chocolate chip and other cookies. They do a very nice gift package with a bottle of milk chilled in an ice bucket along with a box of homemade-style cookies.

        Ooh! Ooh! I know!

        Instead of sending him sweets, buy him a certificate for the dessert tasting menu at Providence! That's around $30 or so. Maybe put a little more on the certificate so he could do it with drink pairings at the bar!!!

          I find Edible Arrangements to be very nice but very over priced.

          We've been very sucessfull sending Cookies By Design. Their baskets are well done and their cookies are delicious and have always been well received.

              You might want to try Edible Arrangements. Their fruit compilations are great, and you can get some with just dipped in chocolate, or a combo. Their website is http://www.ediblearrangements.com.
