Sweet Lady Jane

Sweet Lady Jane - 7 layer mocha cake
After a healthy lunch at Lemonade we deserved the best unhealthy cakes and sweets Los Angeles can offer and that’s at Sweet Lady Jane.

If Sweet Lady Jane sounds familiar to you it’s because they made the wedding cake of Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi.

I was really full from lunch so I couldn’t choose which cake to try.

Sidney chose this 7 layer mocha cake. It was just ok for me. There was more buttercream than cake and there wasn’t much mocha flavor. I did love the thick chocolate glaze outside the cake. We also shared a large French press coffee. That was good!

I couldn’t resist buying a date oatmeal bar and chocolate pillow cookie to take home. I couldn’t resist anything with dates or figs.

When I was in Virginia the cookies I bought remained soft and chewy until the next day. These cookies were rock hard the next day. It must be the weather. Despite being hard I still enjoyed the super dark and rich chocolate cookie studded with lots of chocolate chips.

We loved the apple tarte tatin with it’s thin, flaky crust. The apples were crunchy and the flavor was excellent.

On the way back home we encountered really bad traffic. It was due to this truck that overturned. Our normal 45 minute trip took more than 2 hours. It felt just like I was back in Manila. Only much worse.
