You are speaking my language!  I’d highly recommend Leda’s Bake Shop (http://www.ledasbakeshop.com/) in Sherman Oaks. They do a passionfruit curd cupcake that is awesome.  They only do large batches only and are no longer available for regular bakery purchases, though.  As for the big chains, I prefer Susiecakes over Sprinkles.

I’ve heard good things about Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica, but I haven’t actually tried them! Good excuse to head over there for a sample and some outdoor ice skating though, if you ask me

I really like cupcakes and must have tried every cupcake maker in the LA area. My favorite is right near the promenade in Santa Monica, next to Sur La Table. I think it was called Yum Cupcakes. They beat Sprinkles on taste and freshness anyday.

I’d also suggest Yummy Cupcakes in Santa Monica.  They have an amazing Red Velvet.  I like them much better than Vanilla down the street and Sprinkles.

My absolute favorite place is Violet’s Cakes in Pasadena.  They have amazing homemade/gourmet looking cupcakes with a big assortment of buttercream frosting and batter flavors.  http://www.violetscakes.com/

Try Auntie Em’s Kitchen in Eagle Rock. They might have lost the throwdown against Bobby Flay but definitely good enough to be picked for the thowdown.

You can’t go wrong with Sprinkles in Beverly Hills off of Little Santa Monica in the downtown BH area.
