A Weekend in LA: Sweet Spots

Vacation is the perfect time to TREAT YOSELF!  That's why I always send my balloon shop visitors down the street to Sugar Bakeshop, and why I always head to Instagram for fun dessert finds when I travel.  In addition to finding something to satisfy your taste buds, most dessert places wind up being a treat for your other senses as well.  These I found in LA successfully aim to please both your palate and your eyes at the same time.  These spots have multiple locations, but the ones shown here are all within walking distance of each other in Beverly Hills.


These macarons (macaroons are something else entirely) are just HEAVENLY!  A Laduree vanilla macaron is absolutely my favorite dessert of all time; it probably doesn't hurt that they are all imported straight from France!  And you know I'm a sucker for anything Gray Malin, so I made sure to get a 6 pack in an adorable Gray Malin box.  Bonus: this place looks like a Barbie Dream House inside!

I have seen these rosé gummy bears popping up everywhere, but this store is gummy bear heaven!  I spotted cactus shaped gummies, flamingo dummies, and more mixed in with other cute gifts.

-Sprinkles ATM-

Maybe Sprinkles knows something we don't- perhaps cupcakes are better than money!  You can skip the line and get a cupcake straight out of this ATM, which is sandwiched between the regular Sprinkles bakery and ice cream shop.
