I love food, the happiness it brings and the beauty that I create with it. My specialty is to find out from clients what they want their guests to taste food-wise, create those flavors and make the food look tantalizing. I do this by paying attention to the details regarding how the food is prepared and displayed all the while watching the budget. My clients and their guests are thrilled with the experience and the service that goes with it. I am grateful for many loyal clients and look forward to meeting new clients. Warm regards, Michael Brooks Owner Bread & Butter Catering, Inc.

For 30 years, Cake and Art has revolutionized the art of cake design. Whether sculpturing a 12-foot-tall carousel of horses or painting a baby’s first birthday portrait, each cake is its own unique work of art. Featured in the pages of Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, People, InStyle as well as on the cover of Life magazine, Cake and Art is often the subject of fascinating articles. The Food Network recently aired a profile of Cake and Art in a segment devoted to extraordinary birthday cakes. Cake and Art strives to give the greatest value at the most competitive prices in the vast Southern California market. We do not charge by the slice, but by the level of artistry required in each design.

Our baking journey began decades ago and is based on family recipes and the cultural heritage of service and excellence practiced by our beloved matriarch, Josephine Smith, affectionately called “Ma Smith”. Her recipes combined the southern baking traditions of Mississippi and Alabama with Harlem soul. Several generations later, we continue to uphold the legacy that “good taste” still runs in our family. Evolving from a home-based business, over 15 years ago, that only sold holiday cakes, we were compelled to address our customer demand by expanding the business to several full service retail and wholesale bakeries. Our family has managed to set the baking world on fire growing Make My Cake into a global sensation which draws thousands of worldwide visitors seeking the ultimate “red velvet cake” and various other heavenly desserts to Harlem. At Make My Cake, we serve our sweet creations like Food Network favorite: German Chocolate Cake, New York Times pick: Red Velvet Cake, and local favorite: Sweet Potato Cheesecake to the fans which flock to our bakeries daily. The national exposure has served to affirm the success of our beloved Ma Smith. Our family team of Jo-Ann, Aliyyah, Kevin, Dedan, Khalid, along with our personable staff are dedicated to making each customer smile one sweet tooth at a time.

Jane Lockhart wasn’t always a baker! She found store-bought desserts “too sweet” and “too commercial.” When Jane and her husband Donald started dating, he often cooked dinner while she would experiment with some simple desserts. Jane realized early on that when the freshest ingredients were used, desserts could be moist, not overly sweet, and indeed wonderful! With support from family and friends Jane began baking out of her house, selling her delicious desserts to Los Angeles restaurants. Her reputation for quality and taste grew and on May 5, 1988 the Sweet Lady Jane bakery opened its doors! Sweet Lady Jane uses only the finest imported chocolate, the freshest butter and cream, the highest quality in-season fruit, no mixes (as many bakeries do), and no preservatives. At Sweet Lady Jane we break our own eggs, peel our own apples, roll our own pastry, and squeeze our own lemons.
Sweet Lady Jane has been featured in various media, including: Oprah, Newsweek, In-Style, In-Style Weddings, Entertainment Weekly, Access Hollywood, eXtra, Los Angeles Magazine, Bon Appetit, the Los Angeles Times, People, and many others. The Food Network has included Jane in no less than four of its programs, including: “The Best Of,” “Top 5,” “The Secret Life of Pies,” and “Extreme Cuisine.” W Magazine rated Sweet Lady Jane #1 in their “Little Black Book”, and Town and Country called Jane the “West Coast Cake Diva.” Los Angele’ KCAL-9 rated our lunch as one of the nine best in town. The internationally-renowned Zagat Guide calls Jan’ cakes “works of art,” her pastries “heavenly,” her sandwiches “yummy,” and says that Sweet Lady Jane is “the best place in town for dessert.”
