Sweet treats in West LA

Looking for some delicious desserts?? There's something to please any sweet tooth at these westside locales.

Lemon and Vanilla Cupcakes, Sprinkles

-- Sprinkles -- The original location of the extremely popular cupcake chain is in Beverly Hills on Little Santa Monica. It's definitely a must for any cupcake lover! The cupcakes at Sprinkles are decadent and delicious, with thick frosting atop moist cake, both made from gourmet ingredients. The classic red velvet, vanilla, milk chocolate and my favorite black and white (dark chocolate cake with vanilla frosting) cupcakes are available daily, but other flavors such as mocha, chai latte, peanut butter chip and many more rotate throughout the week. They also have seasonal flavors for many major holidays.

-- MILK -- An ice cream parlor and bakeshop that hearkens back to the soda shop era. They have a wide array of options to satisfy any dessert craving. They serve sundaes, ice cream sandwiches, milk shakes and malts, all made from homemade ice cream, as well as a variety of cookies and small cakes. And of course, besides coffee drinks and bottled sodas, MILK has milk to wash down that dessert.

-- Nine Thirty -- Located inside the posh W Hotel in Westwood, Nine Thirty combines an elegant restaurant with almost a lounge atmosphere. Although the dessert menu is small, each offering is well thought thought out by the chef, with unique flavors and beautiful presentation
