I love this place because of the service that they offer to their customers. I really appreciate the simple but effective way that they handle the customers' requests.
Unedible Birthday Cake. My partner ordered a cake for my birthday in February of this year in the shape of what was supposed to be a replica of my home country of Chile. What we got instead was something so horrible that it looked like a TURD (excuse my French). I am not kidding. Everybody at the party shared the same opinion and I was very embarrassed. Once I got past the "look" I was really hoping that the flavor would have compensated for the horrific exterior. Unfortunately, what we tasted was somethng unedible. So sweet that everybody took just one bite and left the rest on the plate. It has taken me this long to write this review because I have been busy but every time I remember my wonderful birthday celebration at La Boheme I can't stop getting angry at how my partner was robbed in such a way. I wish I could post pictures of the cake here. You have been warned! A very dissapointed Chilean
Amazing red velvet cupcakes!. I ordered 3 different flavors of cupcakes for a babyshower and they were all delicious especially the red velvet cupcakes. They can do any design or replicate any photo and it all looks really great. Will definitely be back.
Editorial Review. Offering a self-proclaimed "edible art experience," this WeHo sweet shop treats customers to more than 15 types of fresh-baked gourmet cupcakes, pupcakes for dogs, brownies, cookies and a huge variety of special occasion cakes.
Cupcakes are good, cakes fall apart!. I have always loved their cupcakes and so when my birthday rolled around I thought I should splurge on myself and get the best. I went there and told them I wanted a custom cake made and he said ok what do u want on it. I just started saying stuff and it was just difficult because he didn?t give me any choices, like I didn?t know what types of frostings, fillings, nothing so I was just baffled by the way he just assumes people can just make up their own cake without knowing what they offer so I?d be able to choose more wisely. Anyway I figured since I loved their cupcakes to get a fruity filling and I thought it was going to be fresh fruit but it wasn?t it was like pie filling in the center and it was SO incredibly sweet that u just couldn?t eat the cake all it tasted was pure sugar and canned fruit filling. Considering almost every cupcake has that rich fudgy frosting, when I first saw my cake I noticed it was milk chocolate frosting and I wanted that same dark fudgy frosting instead. I felt like I was very rushed when ordering it even though I was the only one in there. He then asked how I wanted the cake decorated and I was like uhh wellllll what are my choices for goodness sake and he handed me this huge book of pictures from previous cakes they had made and I was just overwhelmed by all these crazy huge choices since my cake was their smallest cake for like 6 people. So I put it to the side and was like how about flowers? Anyway the worst part of this all was that the cake fell apart it literally collapsed and I felt like my cake was a complete disaster. All the pieces we cut were so ugly and no one could get like a real nice put together piece. Maybe if it tasted good I wouldn?t have been so angry but it didn?t. I was just so disappointed, just stick to their cupcakes unless you like extremely sweet jelly pie fillings in ur broken wobbly cake. Never in my life have I ever dealt with such a thing.
The cupcake diva. The cupcakes were massive and moist and had a lot of inventive flavors. My absolute favorite was the Key Lime Cupcake, with key lime curd inside and lime frosting on top, it was just tart enough. Another favorite was the seasonal Pumpkin Spice, which tasted like pumpkin pie with cream cheese frosting. Their most popular selling flavors though are their Red Velvet with chocolate bits inside and their traditional vanilla Birthday Cake Cupcake. I didn't get to try the Chocolate Ecstasy, but was impressed with the gold splashes on the frosting made from melted edible gold. Silver flecks were also on their special Cherry Blossom. The store itself is fun and not haughty, but very West Hollywood with photos of stars and the cakes that were designed for them, which included Dolly Parton, Jenna Jameson, Rod Stewart, Cher, etc. The entrance meanwhile has an enticing sign that reads, "Diva's Welcome!" and leopard pink swirly stools are available for seating inside.
I LOVE THIS PLACE. I have had several cakes done by them and each cake is more impressive. What ever idea I have in my head, they can put it on a cake. The cakes taste good, staff is great and cupcakes to die for.
Thsi Just In: Filled Cupcakes are Delicious. Especially at this place. The regular sized cupcakes are big enough to share, although a messy undertaking. My favorite is defintely the red velvet. They are open pretty late, so you can have dinner next door at Jinpachi and then crusie over for dessert.
Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes!. I love this place! They make special order cakes and cupcake dog treats! And the amazing assortment of (people) cupcakes are only exceeded by the great customer service! Check them out!
Better than booze. I recently found this place while walking my dogs and have become scarily addicted to their cupcakes. What's worse - my dogs have become addicted to their "pupcakes." We're all going to end up in dessert rehab. The Chocolate Raspberry is going to be the death of me.
Dry as Cardboard. After reading all the rave reviews, I decided to fulfill my cupcake craving today and went to Cake and Art. I asked the server if the creative selections were made today, and he replied with a resounding, "yes." So I bought a red velvet and Smores to share. Yuck! The cupcakes were really dry and the cream cheese frosting was sweet and watery. You are better off saving your $3.25 and buying a dozen from Pavilions. Leda's are the best (moist, flavorful, savory icing). Sprinkles and Joans on Third are more moist than these.
A Life-Changing Cupcake!. These cupcakes need to be eaten to be believed! I am a cupcake fan from WAY BACK, but the cupcakes at CAKE and ART are BEYOND delicious! There are many many fun flavors and they couldn't be more fresh! The kind of place you go to and you are GUARANTEED to leave with a smile!! Also, the staff/owners are wonderfully kind and friendly!!!
Cupcakes have reached a new level!!. I really really love the cupcakes at Cake and Art - they are completely different than anything I've tried in a looooong time. Sooo moist and big and can i tell you they are tasty!! and they all have different fillings - i tried the peanut butter and jelly and it was amazing!!! just like a peanut butter jelly sandwhich but sweeter!! i highly reccomend it!
YES!!!. GREAT CUPCAKES!! FILLINGS!!! WHAT MORE DO I NEED TO SAY!! GO THERE! I WILL DEFINTELY BE BACK NEXT TIME I VISIT MY FRIENDS IN LA!!!
YUMMMY!!!. So I am def a lover of the cupcake. But recently i became very skeptical after visting Sprinkles (which is supposed to be the best in LA) because their cupcakes were kinda dry and small and there was a long line. I was walking to go tan on santa monica blvd and i see this bakery open - i though hey, why not? OH MY GOSH! They had the most tasty looking cupcakes ever and there were so many to choose from - i picked the lemon one - i was totally getting into it - i think the frosting was cream cheese (yum) and then when i got to the middle i almost screamed!! there was some sort of lemon curd inside - it was sooooo good!!! i def reccomend this place!
WOW! These cupcakes are GREAT!. So I stopped by this little shop on Santa Monica blvd that a friend had told me about - i love sweet stuff - so i went in and wow! they have an awesome selection of big cupcakes with lots of frosting. I had one called the Black and White (i think) it was like heaven - chocolate and white cake topped with chocolate and white frosting - the best of both worlds!! oh oh! and it had a cream filling. I'm def going back!
Oh My God!!! Finally cupcakes with fillings!!!. I have finally found the cupcakes of my dreams! I went last week and have been back twice! The chocolate fudge ecstasy is to die for. The chocolate icing is rich and dense and the creamy center brings me back to childhood. Not only are the cupcakes fantastic, but this is by far the most charming and beautiful cupcake shop in Los Angeles. Now I know what to get all my friends for Christmas...cupcake gift baskets!!!
THESE CUPCAKES ARE DIVINE!!. Imagine a place where cupcakes come filled with sweet creams and jellies - where frostings come in many different flavors - and a place where the cake is always moist.... that place has arrived in LA!! Cake and Art all I can say is GREAT JOB. These cupcakes are addicting! The S'more cupcake is like nothing I've ever had!!! I will be there every day!!
