Sweet of the Week | Joan’s on Third

Every year around this time I share a cake that I really love or a round up of cakes that I love.┬áThis year in honor of my birthday tomorrow my Sweet of the Week is dedicated to a cake that should be part of every Angeleno’s life – the Strawberry Crown Cake from Joan’s on Third. Delicate white cake, fresh whipped cream and fresh strawberries. It is simple and it is perfect. What I love most about it is that it reminds me of my birthday cakes growing up. My mom would always buy me this flavor of cake. She would get it from various Valley bakeries, but that combination of white cake and a light whipped cream frosting and strawberries is a flavor that I not only love, but also crave. I spoke lovingly about it last weekend when I was on KFI 640 AM’s The Fork Report and you can list to the broadcast here (start at 01:11:04).

Sweet of the Week | Forage, Silverlake CA

This weeks sweet is brought to you by Forage. I have to say their desserts never let me down. From one of the best German chocolate cakes ever to sticky chewy oatmeal cookies to seasonal fruit cheesecake, they’ve got the sweets game down. This new seasonal special, Strawberry Tres Leches Cake, is all sorts of amazing. A nice crumb, just enough sweetened condensed milk and super sweet California straberries.
