The first time I had Hot Cakes Bakes was at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s birthday of all places. One bite of their delicious cake and I was DONE. I mean, who cared about the celebrities, politicians, and Gospel Choir singing Happy Birthday- this cake was AMAZING. After pestering the waiter, I ended up eating Four slices. Two vanilla, one chocolate, and one red velvet. MMMMmmmm
Later, I went to the Bakery in West LA to try their cupcakes.
While the frosting was as delicious as I remembered, the cake was a smidge dry. Unfortunately, their little shop has a problem with AC, so they often keep their products in the fridge, which can dry them out. I’m still rounding up to 5-cherries based on my sublime experience with the birthday cake at Arnie’s though!
