We are so happy to announce that you can now find our cupcakes and cake pops in two locations! Both shops carry salted caramel, chocolate and red velvet cupcakes, in addition to our most popular cake pops, red velvet and chocolate. So when the cravings hit, please visit:

Carmela Ice Cream
2495 E Washington Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91104
Winter Hours: 12pm - 8pm

Boba Loca Coffee & Tea
10946 Weyburn Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90024

And while you are visiting Carmela Ice Cream, please say hello to the owner (and dear friend!) Jessica! Her ice cream and sorbets are a pure delight and are very well known by foodies and food critics around town. Just can't resist the salted caramel ice cream, or the vanilla orange sorbet, and the smell of freshly baked waffle cones. Simply amazing!

It is time for the Cupcake Challenge again! Next Saturday, February 5th, will be your chance to sample cupcakes from over 20 bakeries. We will take part in the competition again this year (look here and here for pics from the past 2 years) and we would like to invite you along with a friend! Simply leave a comment on this post and next Thursday, we will randomly draw a winner for a pair of tickets. Please enter ONLY if you are in the Los Angeles area and very hungry for delicious cupcakes!
