Though less devastating than a cream pie, a slice of cake still provides effective suppressive fire during fancy dinner-party food fights attended by Larry, Curly, and/or Moe. Today's Groupon lets you lock and load with smile-inducing ammunition: for $3, you get any slice of layer cake (a $6 value) at Lido Bakery in Manhattan Beach.
Lido Bakery’s seasoned pastry persons specialize in assembling and embellishing creative cakes from scratch that are so delicious, readers of The Knot had no choice but to name Lido Bakery one of the best wedding-cake bakers in LA in 2010. Chocolate, raspberries, fudge, and lemons run amok among the magnificently moist, delicately flavored artistic creations on the menu. The berries and cream cake unites an all-star lineup of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries to swim laps through milky cream on layers of lush yellow cake, while an almond rocca slice corrals crunchy, almondy chunks into deep, dark chocolatey cake for endless games of backgammon. Lido Bakery’s cakes are carefully decorated with fresh butter-cream icing to simultaneously delight the eye and tongue.
The Knot named Lido Bakery one of the best wedding-cake bakers in Los Angeles in its prestigious Best of Weddings 2010. Seven Citysearchers and five Insider Pagers give Lido Bakery a five-star average. Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars:
- The service is amazing and this family owned and run bakery is by far the best bakery that I have ever been to. Great people making wonderful products, who could ask for a better recipe than that. – Adam Webber, Citysearch
- Classic bakeries to me make stuff that is just too basic and sweet, and Lido Bakery takes the "bakery experience" to a new level. Their cakes are sweet,and dense (in the best way) but moist. – Janell W., Insider Pages
