Need a good bakery to order a birthday cake for this weekend. Any recommendations between the triangle of Thousand Oaks -> Santa Monica -> Burbank area?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Susiecakes! Locations in Brentwood and Studio City among other places.

    1. +1 for Susiecakes.

        +2 for Susiecakes.

        Love their vanilla cake.

          Portos! The prices are excellent as well.

          1. re: latindancer

            Another vote for Susiecakes.

            I do not believe their Studio City location is open yet.

              Yes, you're right. I must have been thinking of Calabasas, which might work for the OP.

                +7 if my count is right for Susiecakes. Moist!

              +3 great coconut cake.

                  Its the best. Reminds me of the Kahala in Hawaii many years ago.

                    Omg…

                    My favorite place on the planet many years ago…
                    We'd stay there for weeks and that coconut cake was unbelievable. The little beach shack with great hamburgers and hotdogs. Do you remember? You are right…that cake at Susiecakes is very much like it.

                    1. re: latindancer

                      I do remember. Great macadamia nut ice cream as well. Especially nice when you can charge it to the room and dad is treating!...but I digress.

            Would need to order by tomorrow

            1. Yea....Susiecakes is great. I'm not much of a cake person, but a friend i work with is. And when I order her cake from there, people always ask where I got it. And....the first time or two I used them, they called me the next day to make ask how it went. I mean....gotta love that kind of service.

              1. Portos.

                1. Thanks for all the recommendations, ended up ordering from Susie's in Calabasas.

                  Will keep Portos and Cake Monkey in mind for next time.

                    What kind did you order? I sure hope you like it, after all the ringing endorsements we've given here . . .

                      I ordered the Vanilla Celebration Cake, came out great.
