Sweet Lady Jane
It's not easy to score a sugar fix in Los Angeles, where everything is sugar-free and fat-free. With more than 70 layer cakes, cheesecakes, pies and tarts from which to choose, this is the place to indulge in the most sinful sweets. The raspberry-marzipan tart flaunts dense almond paste smothered by ruby raspberry glaze. The cheesecakes are luscious--the cappuccino, spiked with chocolate, is rich, while the hazelnut is feather-light. But what really sets this bakery apart is the kitchen's artistry--the frosting is glassy smooth and piping is always perfect.
