New LA bakery: Dainties Cupcakes

I really do feel like I can't turn around without another cupcake bakery opening in LA, but the more the merrier!

Via AOL's style blog Los Angelest Hotlist comes word of Dainties Cupcakes, which AOL calls "the best cupcakes in Los Angeles, bar none."

Here's what Dainties has to say for itself:

Take a moist devil’s food cake or a rich vanilla cake, add freshly whipped cream, and an award winning chef and what do you get - great cupcakes!

I’m chef Bill Dertouzos, proud owner of Flatbush & J Gourmet Co. I have been serving my cupcakes to my catering clients for the past six years and they rave about how great they are. We take great cake, then fill the centers with flavored whipped creams, hand dip them in chocolate ganache, and finish them with a huge floret of cream on top. It’s not cream cheese icing – it’s fresh whipped cream.

We presently have 5 flavors:
• Caramel • Chocolate • Coffee • Fresh Raspberry • Vanilla Bean

In the very near future we’ll have Roasted Banana, Tiramisu, Maple, Mango, Meyer Lemon, White Peach, Irish Cream, and whatever flavors you might suggest. We’re open to new ideas.

These are not ordinary cupcakes. Dainties remind me of the old-school cupcakes from my neighborhood bakery when I was a kid in Brooklyn in the 60’s.

Those current four look so unbelievably delicious.

Definitely worth going to. All chocolate cupcakes with flavored whipped cream frosting make it not too sweet, just perfect.

Brooklyn NY - I think we both grew up eating from the same bakery - Great Cupcakes. Felt like I was back in Brooklyn again after 35 years.
