One might think that being a food writer means that you spend all your time dining out and hobnobbing with celebrity chefs, but surprisingly one of the more common parts of our job is to answering our friends' and family's queries about where to eat and drink. (Said queries come in around-the-clock, usually around suppertime or happy hour, when they're busy debating these pressing issues with their own dining companions. Deciphering drunken texts is another of our many unspoken job requirements.) One of the more common questions we get asked in these messages isn't about about our favorite variety of avocado or heirloom tomato, believe it or not; it's where to buy a birthday cake.

We have the typical stand-bys that always get a mention. There's Lark's lemon cream cake, Porto's majorly affordable personalized tarts and great carrot cake, Phoenix Bakery's legendary white strawberry cake, Hourie Sahakian's chocolate cardamom cake from Short Cake, and Duff Goldman's outrageously good carrot cake at Cake Mix that gives even my mom's a run for its money. But a new bevy of baked goods are entering the scene over at the Deli at Little Dom's in Los Feliz.

Pastry chef Ann Kirk is making both six and nine inch rounds of her gorgeous triple layer cakes. The folks from the bakery were kind enough to send over some crave-inducing photos of their new offerings, and we can't wait to get over there to give them a try. Aren't they purdy?
