If you’re ever in Los Angeles, you have to check out the shops on Melrose Avenue. It’s a mixture of high fashion brands and quirky, inexpensive shops. There are a few cafes to eat at while your shopping but the one that sticks out is Charm City Cakes West and Duff’s Cakemix: Bakery & DIY Studio. Charm City Cakes is famous from the Food Network show, Ace of Cakes.
Duff’s Cakemix: Bakery & DIY Studio is like Color Me Mine but with cakes. We didn’t have time to decorate a cake so we just got some cupcakes from the bakery. I got the funfetti flavor with vanilla frosting. The size of cupcake was larger than the standard size cupcake. Since it was a cake shop, my focus was on the cake part but the frosting was great as well. The cake was fluffy and light and balanced with the heavy frosting. Definitely a place to check out in LA if you’re a fan of the show or cupcake aficionado.
