Cake Monkey pop-up opens in Silver Lake

April 23, 2010 | 11:50 am

Monkey2Cake Monkey, the online bakery whose snack treats you might also luck upon at retailers such as Silverlake Wine, is having a weekend bake sale -- indefinitely.

This means that Friday to Sunday, you can get your fill of cakewiches (cake sandwiches filled with buttercream and covered in chocolate), inside-out s'mores (housemade graham crackers smeared with ganache and topped with toasted marshmallow) and yo-ho's (Yodel meets Ho-Ho).

Not hungry for cake and chocolate and frosting yet? There are also: mini layer cakes; Cake Monkey Moguls (think Sno Balls); 'Nuff Said's (chocolate crumble cookie with housemade marshmallow, dark chocolate, pecans, caramel and fleur de sel); Li'l Merri's (oatmeal cookie sandwiches filled with maple-vanilla buttercream); and a special pop-up only treat, ice cream sandwiches. Prices are $3 to $7.50.

The former Zanzabelle space on Rowena Avenue playing host to the pop-up bakery also features works from local artists.

This weekend is opening weekend. The bake sale starts Friday at noon. Hours: Friday, noon to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

2912 Rowena Ave., Silver Lake
