Bakery’s New Owners Replace Breads With Outrageous Cakes, Desserts

October 23, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The new owners of a traditional Southern California bakery stopped selling breads, but continued to sell Taiwanese-style buns while expanding their line of cakes and desserts. The new emphasis is also reflected in the name change, from Kelley’s Bakery to Caked LA. In the process, and thanks to publicity generated by photos of wild-looking cakes and desserts on social media, the bakery has become a foodie’s paradise, and a popular destination for both local college students and families with kids. Among the favorites are candy-adorned milkshakes, tea with a halo of cotton candy atop the rim, and lemonade with a slice of rainbow cake on top, anchored by a straw. Older customers miss the breads, but still come by with kids and grandkids in tow, asking for the strawberry Unicorn Milkshake topped with candies and whipped cream. [Image Credit: © Caked LA ]
