Lark Cake Shop is yet another Los Angeles (Silverlake) bakery. Here are some photos and reviews of it. Photos by Flickr user jleighb, who also has a huge and amazing set of cupcake photos you should definitely check out. And just as an aside to you Los Angeles cupcake fans, the next LA Cupcakes Meetup will take place October 6th at Leda's Bake Shop. Maybe they'll hit up Lark soon too.

Woolsey on Chowhound reviews Lark:
The cupcakes are not complete dust, but, well... they could definitely be moister. They're not really very satisfying in that regressive, "it's like being a kid!" way Sprinkles (and, from the photos, Crumbs) does more successfully. The vanilla cupcake was like a chunk of wedding cake one gets at the tail end of the reception, complete with overly thick wedding cake frosting. Even the stiff white paper cup and straight cylindrical sides seem prissy. The coconut cupcake is a bit more successful...
(the rest covers more on the coconut as well as the rum cupcake)
Eriny on Chowhound on Lark's Salted Caramel Cupcake
I opted for the salted caramel cupcake--vanilla cupcake with a salty caramel icing-like frosting (hard-er, not soft and fluffy). It was delicious--the cake is small enough that you get a good icing to cake ratio with salty-sweet in every bite.
She's also got some photos on her blog, Erin's Kitchen.
5% Celery reviews Lark:
My date, Emily, and I each ordered a cupcake to sample the standard fare of the house. I chose the coconut-nut vanilla frosted cupcake, while she picked a delich’ chocolate-frosted dream that was surprisingly light on the taste-buds, despite its rich appearance. The coconut was crisp and the icing cool, sugary, and fresh- sweet relief on a hot summer day. I ordered an espresso to compliment my snack and it came out frothy and smooth, rather than the usual bitter and oily combo that one finds at Backdoor Bakery and Casbah. Emily, an avid baker herself, is a tough critic when it comes to baked goods, and she agreed that Lark beats the pants off other bakeries in the area, due to its homegrown taste, and reasonable prices.
