Short Cake bakery opens Friday

December 15, 2011 |  4:57 pm

GanacheThe much anticipated Short Cake bakery opens Friday in the Original Farmers Market on 3rd Street. This is the sweet partner to the Short Order diner located just a few stalls away.

Short Cake bakers Hourie Sahakian and Ramon Ramirez have crafted unique sweet and savory pastries that include croissants, scones, cookies, pies, quiches, cakes and more. The cakes and pies will be made in individual portions (as the name suggests), so there is no need for sharing. The bakery will also be serving savory offerings that are ideal for a quick lunch or dinner, such as quiche with bacon, leek and Comt√© cheese or bun bread pudding with spinach and mushrooms, and bacon and cheddar croissants.

For the grand opening weekend, the bakery will be giving samples of its signature baked goods,  such as chocolate cardamom cream cake, chiffon cake with orange curd and meringue, and apple cider spice cake and Nik Krankl's Single Origin Cold Brew coffee. In addition, Short Cake will be hosting a book signing with Nancy Silverton for her latest, "The Mozza Cookbook: Recipes From Los Angeles' Favorite Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria," on Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. 

6333 W. 3rd St., No. 316, Los Angeles, (323) 761-7976, www.shortcakela.com.
