      Tropical Coconut Cake $5.50 a slice at Susie Cakes. Nice and moist.

            i'm always tempted by philippes desserts but they inevitably turn out to be shortening based and have that awful, waxy, plasticky mouthfeel and overly sweet taste. i found the the coconut cream pie to be a terrible disappointment. is the coconut cake an exception?

            Farmer's market on Sundays in the Pacific Palisades. I can't remember the name of the baker, but they only have a couple of bakeries so it shouldn't be hard to figure out. She has an amazing coconut cake and sells by the slice.

              I found the name. Bountiful Bakery. Here's the website. http://bountifulbakeryla.com The menu shows only full cakes, but they do sell by the slice at the farmer's market.

                    but it's the size of 2 large slices and it's super high quality and delicious

                  saw coconut cake by the slice available at the farmers market at third/fairfax; normandie bakery. never tried it, haven't heard raves about it, but it's there if you want it.

                        Marmalade - I go to one on Montanna. Don't have evdery day. But other cakes are excellent as well - if you are a frosting lover.

                              Interesting. I'm vegan and 99% of the cake I gotta choke down is pure crap.

                              I am gonna call this bluff.
