    I had the confetti vanilla bean and that was GOOD. The texture was amazing and the cake and the frosting tasted like heaven!

    Came from Seattle really excited to try this place!! The best cupcakes and macarons iv ever had in my life! So moist, not overwhelmingly sweet and the pie's crust was so flaky and not overworked!

    Their Vanilla Bean or Red Velvet . Always, go with an eateries namesake if they have one, you can't go wrong! Their fondant is one of the most flavorful out there <3

    Many of Amy Berman's desserts, fittingly, feature vanilla. A whimsical touch: her icebox desserts are served in mason jars.

    I come here for the Icebox Dessert Shots alone. So good, its even worth buying a whole jarful. YUM

    Check their twitter. Sometimes they offer a free cupcake baby. The vanilla frosting and chocolate cake are superb!

    You're better off skipping this place altogether and heading down the street to Yummy Cupcakes.

    Great cupcakes that many people don't know about. A must during visits to Santa Monica. Try their vanilla cupcake.
