Cake Monkey pop-up opens in Silver Lake

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

Another recent Bakery Opening is Essential Chocolate Desserts at the Westside Pavilion. This is their second location. Thier first is their Bakery and Retail Location in Culver City off Washington in Bakery Row. Besides the Moonpies, Gourmet Ding Dongs, Cupcakes and Cake Truffles that they carry at the Bakery, their Westside Pavilion location also carries cake slices, bundt cakes, KC Belgian Chocolate, and Carmela Ice Cream. A true find for any dessert lover.
