If you thought the whole “cupcake thing” was over, then you’ve obviously never been to Lark Cake Shop in Silverlake. Lark has been my cupcakery of choice on the east side of town for a couple of years now. Small, local, and delicious. The ladies at Lark make a moist cake with a slight crumble, but it’s their smooth and creamy frosting that really takes the cake. I enjoy their vegan options much more than Babycakes NYC downtown (really), and you really can’t go wrong with any of their offerings from their gooey brownies to their most heavenly ice box cake.
OH MY GOODNESS. Their classic ice box cake is seriously the stuff that all magical cookies and cream dreams come from. Moist, creamy, deeply chocolatey ala Oreo cookie… the whipped cream layers are precise and comforting. Just look (below) at its glory…
Aside from their hip location and quality goods, Lark’s got a friendly staff and a small seating area perfect for a quick treat. They’ve also got coffee covered.
