Bakery in LA area with good mini desserts


I am holding a mixer for a large group of people and want to serve mini (individual) desserts. I already have Porto's Bakery on my list but would like to comparison shop. Can anyone suggest a bakery in the LA area that makes great mini desserts?

  1. Susina has a large assortment of really great mini cookies. I bought myself a box for my birthday and they're awesome.

      I would agree. Susina is the best bet...

    2. I'm sure it won't be cheaper than Porto's, but Vanilla Bakeshop makes really cute mini icebox desserts.

        i'll vouche for vanilla bake shop. they catered my wedding last year (when the were amy's baby cakes). everyone loved them! we had the mini banana puddings, mini key lime pies, and several varieties of the mini cupcakes.

      2. I've been wishing for such an excuse to try the treats from cakemonkey. Their stuff looks beautiful and sounds tasty. It's definitely a price jump from Porto's, though.

        check it out:

        Please report back if you try it...thanks.

        1. definitely Porto's if you are close. Bristol Farm's are beautiful, but not as tasty. Also, cupcake shops generally will sell assortments of mini-cupcakes that are crowd pleasers.

          1. You truly cannot find cheaper than Porto's unless you go way down in quality. Susina's is really good, but I estimate would cost twice as much. Most cupcake places would be high cost as well, plus you don't get the variety.

              Yeah, I was just at Portos and they do have a great selection of mini cakes, cake slices. That is an amazing bakery. I do like Susina's mini cookies though. They're pricey but damn good and beautiful to boot. I'm actually not so hot on their cakes, strangely enough.
