Looking for a Sarno's Bakery French Chocolate Rum Cake recipe (moved from L.A. board)

I'm looking for a Sarno's Bakery - "French Chocolate Rum Cake" recipe or someplace around the Los Angeles area where one can be purchased.

    Thank you for the link: Here's an older link on this subject: it took
    me to Burger Boy.

    Thank you Burger Boy for the suggestion.!

    Your suggestion of the Eagle Rock Bakery & Deli was right on.

    Ordered a custom 8” “French Chocolate Rum Cake” and it is almost like Sarno’s.

    The icing/frosting is chocolate fudge, good but not exactly like Sarno’s.

    Substituted the pineapple filling with vanilla and the alternate filling layer is chocolate.

    Maybe a little too much Rum on the cakes, but it works.

    Try Eagle Rock Italian Bakery & Deli, Claros in San Gabriel (I think they get there stuff from Federicos Bakeries), or maybedo a Yelp serac for Italian Bakeries.I MISS Sarnos very much. I still see the daughter in the neighborhood at her place Mama Mia Cafe on Vermont, right across from the old Sarnos. Oh how I miss the cannolis. Ciao
