# OF SEATSNot many
PRIVATE ROOM AVAILABLE?No
It’s all about the cakes at this small, no-frills décor confectionery shop: they’re not only yummy to eat, they’re also the central design element of the space. (Seriously, the stylized frosting work here is stunning.) Forget scene: everyone just wants a cupcake or generous wedge of cake in his or her tummy as quickly as possible. Order your treats from the counter, and if you aren’t lucky enough to snag a precious seat, take them to go.
Silver Lake locals and cake connoisseurs duke it out for primo positions in line to snag their favorite treats.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Anything–people even rush in wearing their pjs to pick up orders, so dress as you please.

WHY WE LIKE IT
Perfect Silver Lake sugar fix.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
A bit more seating for sit-in clientele would be nice (we were juggling cupcake, coffee, keys, water-and it just didn’t work).
GOOD TO KNOW
They have a green ethos–all ingredients are organic, and packaging is biodegradable.
