Cake Monkey has become the go-to source for the sweetest, prettiest single-serving snack treats just like the ones we ate as kids—only way better. LA Weekly deemed them the “Best Reason to Skip Designer Cupcakes.” One bite of their decadent nostalgic desserts and we’re sure you’ll agree.

About The Food

Yes, Cake Monkey’s “snack treats” are stunning to the eye. But the real reason everyone from Bon Appetit to Daily Candy to the Los Angeles Times to L.A. Weekly are in love with this bakery is simple: amazing gourmet renditions of the classic Hostess-style snack treats. Made from the finest all-natural ingredients and packaged in attractive boxes, their gorgeous, whimsical single-serving desserts are perfect finales to any refined dinner—not to mention a worthy answer to everyday cravings.

Meet The Owner

Timing and technology brought together ex-TV producer Lisa J. Olin and partner and pastry chef Elizabeth Belkind, who previously presided over desserts at L.A.’s revered Grace and Campanile restaurants. Now fixtures on the Southern California bakery scene, they met after Lisa came up with the idea for a business featuring gourmet versions of classic childhood treats and put an ad on Craigslist for an expert baker. The rest is pastry history.
