Marzipan layered cake

  • 4

My FIL is nuts for Marzipan and has requested a cake with Marzipan for his birthday next month. Anyone know of any local bakeries who do a Marzipan cake?

  1. I'm not sure if there are cakes with marzipan in the layers, but the Princess Cake at Victor Bene's bakeries in Gelson's markets has a marzipan layer covering the entire cake. It's a nice spring-green shade, too.

    1. Are you referring to kransekage?

      Olson's Scandinavian Deli would be my first call:

      (323) 938-0742
      5660 W Pico Blvd
      Los Angeles, CA 90019

      1. Try Thee's Pastries in the Fairfax farmer's market. (323) 937-1968

        Also I think Sweet lady jane's does marzipan
