LA Cupcakes: Layers

For our 23rd Los Angeles Cupcake MeetUp, we tried Layers Cupcakes, an online order only cupcakery in L.A., which delivers throughout California. They've been growing steadily by word of mouth over the last year and are looking for a potential storefront in the future. Since there wasn't an actual store to visit yet, I hosted the meetup in my condo's quad area. I setup some tables, had some milk and Ebony from Layers provided 36 cupcakes. We had a really good turn out too with 25 people in total.

If you're looking for plain vanilla or chocoalte cupcakes, Layers just isn't it though. Instead, we tried their unique flavors like Lavender Honey, Vanilla Rose, Strawberry Lemonade and Mexican Hot Chocolate (spicy!).

My group seemed to really like the Strawberry Lemonade the best, but I liked the Vanilla Rose. Most of all, you could tell each cupcake was homemade and were light and fluffy. One member went so far as to say it was their favorite cupcakery she's tried with us so far.

Below is a quick video from the event and check out here for more photos.

Layers will also be among the shops participating in the 2nd annual Cupcake Challenge at the end of March and I'll be one of the judges again this year.
