These LA 3 bakeries will make grandma's birthday cake look (and taste) bad

The cake is one of the highlights of a birthday celebration, and this has never been more real than it is right now. So I’ve compiled a collection of the best birthday cakes for kids in LA that will make every birthday celebration memorable.

This list has the right cake for everything you’re searching for. There are Los Angeles landmarks, show-stopping desserts, and cakes that taste better than Grandma’s, trust me. There are also gluten-free and vegan desserts for kids that are so delicious that no one can notice the difference.

These kids’ birthday cakes are so awesome that they’ll make up for holding a virtual party (again) this year by wowing a single child (and parent) at next year’s big bash. Now it’s only a question of choosing which flavor to go for.

How can I know these are the best cakes? I have a big sweet tooth, am a picky eater, and have been to hundreds of birthday parties. I’ve consumed a significant amount of cake. And these bakeries are truly exclusive in terms of flavor and appearance.

These are the cakes that everybody recognizes — they appear at a number of birthday parties each year. People have been enjoying them for years because they’re so hella good.

Hansen’s Cakes

Hansen’s has been producing birthday cakes for children in Los Angeles since 1920. Not only can Hansen’s produce almost everything your child might picture, but they still make some of the finest (and cheapest) cupcakes in town, just in case you choose to offer party guests a variety of flavors.


About the fact that the first SusieCakes store opened in Los Angeles in 2006, it became so successful that there are now over 25 locations in California and Texas, making it a Los Angeles institution. If Grandma is a world-class cook, these cakes taste like they were created with love by your grandmother. Susie’s Famous Southern Red Velvet is the most common variety, accompanied by Vanilla Celebration Cake (which is actually the best Funfetti cake you’ve ever had, and kids love it).

Porto’s Bakery and Cafe

Many Angelenos consider Portos’ Tres Leches cake to be the best cake in the region. However, the Milk N’ Berries and Parisian Chocolate flavors seem to be the most common among children. This Cuban American bakery is a go-to for birthday cakes in Los Angeles, and the Cuban Sandwiches and Potato Balls are delectable if you need catering for the rest of the crowd.


You won’t want to cut these cakes because they’re too pretty. Roobina’s tier cakes are exquisitely made and will steal your breath away. This bakery’s artisans take pride in their work, and you’ll get exactly that. Each cake, and each ordering experience, receives a lot of sweet, personal attention. Take a look at the desserts that have come out of this establishment!
