With the continuing onslaught of gourmet food trucks to hit Los Angeles, Little Spoon Desserts is the first of its kind. It offers a rotating selection of sweet confections from cakes and tarts to cookies and bars.
On a recent night out I was excited to find Little Spoon Dessert truck parked right on Hollywood Blvd, so I had to stop for some dessert.
I took a cursory glance over the menu and was instantly taken by the Signature Cake. The Signature Cake is made up of layers of marble cake with mocha frosting and chocolate chips. I was sold!
The cake was moist and soft and while I’m not a fan of frosting, the mocha frosting was just right. It was slightly sweet and had a delicate whipped texture. The chocolate chips lent themselves well to this silky cake, adding just the bite it needed.
I also ordered their Assorted Mini Cupcakes, because I can never pass up mini anything. The mini cupcakes come in groups of three, with your choice of flavors. I chose the red velvet, the peanut butter, and the vanilla coconut. The cupcakes came in the cutest little box where the three fit snuggly together. The red velvet was classic and tasty. The peanut butter was rich and velvety. The coconut, however, was a bit dry and a little too sweet.
The Pumpkin Cheesecake was divine. It had a thick and smooth consistency and completely captured the flavors of the season, with slightly spicy warm tones. The cheesecake was firm with a delicate crumble from the graham cracker crust and kept me wanting more.

oh, how come there isn't anything like that here in Vancouver (rhetorical question; I already know- outdated food laws)?

Next time, try the Caramel Cookie Bark or the Rocky Road. You will not be disappointed.

Oh wow – pumpkin cheesecake looks amazing! As does that mini peanut butter cupcake! I'd be in trouble with this type of spooning…
