Great cupcakes! 6/19/2008

Best Red Velvet cupcake I've ever had! Unfortunately there are only 2 Le Cupcake locations in the U.S., Washington D.C. and Santa Monica. The SM location however is closed due to the mall being under construction. Pros: red velvet cupcake Cons: location under construction for the next year more

Sprinkles has some competition! 8/29/2007

Despite the fact that this place is located in a shopping mall food court in Santa Monica, I gave this place a try. The carrot and red velvet are delicious!! They are definitely more moist than Sprinkles, and tasted fresh. On the other hand, I would stick to Sprinkles if you like their chocolate or strawberry-The chocolate here was dry and crumbly, and the strawberry is too strawberry (reminds me of the nestle strawberry milk powder as a kid). I think this place is definitely on par with sprinkles, cupcakes look a little cuter, and their prices are better ($2.75 each), but it's located in a food court in Santa Monica Place (not so appealing, but free parking)...Definitely worth trying if you like cupcakes. Sprinkles should learn to put a little cupcake divider in the box like Le Cupcake...less messy. Pros: carrot and red velvet, free parking Cons: LOCATION more

Best! Best! Best! 5/1/2007

Cupcakes are HEAVENLY!!! I Love the strawberry cupcake. It beats strawberry cupcakes at any other bakeries. Pros: Heavenly cupcakes, location more

Great cupcakes 4/15/2007

This place has amazing cupcakes, and with the small cupcake factories popping up in the small nooks and crannies of LA, i can say that this place is one of the best, esp on the west side. Pros: great cupcakes more

try the red velvet! 4/15/2007

I surprisingly came across this adorable cupcake stand while I was perusing through Santa Monica Place. It seemed eerily similar to SPrinkles, which I thought was highly overrated the first time I tried it. I ordered the red velvet with the cream cheese icing (the only flavor I EVEr get, because I know I can't bake it myself), and it was pretty delicious. I guess it had to do with the fact that the batch I chose from was straight from the oven unlike the Sprinkles cupcake I ate which seemed to have been sitting in the glass display for hours.... So I guess, next time you visit a cupcake joint, you just have to be lucky with timing more than anything. more

Tasty cupcakes, but they're no Sprinkles 4/9/2007

Le Cupcake is kind of like a Sprinkles wanna-be: they have almost the exact same flavors (red velvet, chai tea latte, peanut butter, carrot), same cute decorating, and even an eerily similar website (i think even the FONT is the same as sprinkles!). While the cupcakes are good, they are a little too sweet and flake easily, and are definitely not as delicious as Sprinkles. Additionally, the stand is in a gross, overcrowded food court that always reeks of grease, meat, and homeless people. If you're around 3rd Street and craving a cupcake, get a few here (TO GO!), but if possible, try to get to Sprinkles or a real bakery. Pros: tasty, cheap compared to competition Cons: in nasty food court more

Great cupcakes! Oh my gosh! 4/8/2007

I am a cupcake fanatic! I had the opportunity to taste Le Cupcake's wonderful cupcakes. I had the red velvet(to die for) and the vanilla. Truly amazing! I highly recommend the red velvet cupcake. It is one of the best I have tried. Go to the Third Street Promenade and go inside the mall and GO TO LE CUPCAKE! Pros: Cupcakes/Frosting/Decoration more

AMAZING 4/8/2007

Everyone raves about Spinkles cupcakes, but I think these are better. The red velvet is the best I've had. They are good size, not too big. Must go here! Pros: Red Velvet Cons: Location in the mall food court more
