  1. If you're restricted to around the Santa Monica, Vanilla Bake Shop is probably your best bet. I am not a cupcake lover and even I found them decent.

      just bought some today at Yummy's. next to Sur La Table. Liked those better than Vanilla Bakery. I would also try Caprice on Pico, across from Trader joes in SM. No cupcakes but AMAZING AMAZING PAstries: tarts, cookies, eclairs, french bakery.. Delisch!!!

        1. Vanilla Bake Shop's raspberry filled, ganache topped miniatures are beautiful and delicious--the best I've had...by a long shot.

          1. Cupcakes for 100 people = 200 cupcakes -- maybe? I could eat two.

            Some places charge crazy prices for cupcakes. Therefore, the total price might allow you to consider quality a little more and not restricting the search to SM. IMO, the best cupcakesand best price is just a drive south on the 405. Have a great party.
