Purse Cakes and Pig Dogs

This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

There is a bakery on Glenoaks called Paradise Pastry and Cafe. It is a land of wonder, with a hot deli, cold deli. meat market, and import shop. If you need foie gras, veal sweetbreads, back bacon or yogurt soda, this is the place to go. In the Armenian bakery you can get nazook still warm from the oven and a huge assortment of French pastries.

The most amazing thing about Paradise Bakery for me is their cake styling. The two most popular cakes are purses and a little cuddly creature who may be a dog, but has piglike features. To me he will always be the pig dog. And then every once in a while they really go ouside the box.
