Don’t limit your carb consumption (and take-out dollars) to pizza, pasta, and tacos. Order up some baked goods!
The Fairfax district bakery Cake Monkey offers delivery via DoorDash or overnight shipping nationwide. Order up one of their adorable individual layer cakes (what cupcakes wish they could be); haute takes on pop tarts and Oreos and tasty bars. This weekend, there’s a sale on the latter, and it’s buy one, get one free on lemon bars, blondies, and magic bars. They freeze well, so stock up.
Bon Temps, one of our favorite restaurants of last year, is offering its amazing pastries this weekend. Chef Lincoln Carson’s tasty creations, like a sweet danish topped with Harry’s Berries strawberries and perfect croissants can be ordered for prepaid pickup on Tock. You can also grab Carson’s gorgeous St. Honoré cake to go. The marvel of chocolate, pecan mousseline and vanilla cream serves two to four people and is scientifically proven to combat stir-craziness.
The same can be said for Sweet Lady Jane’s triple berry cake. Beloved by everyone from the Kardashians to Oprah, the classic Los Angeles dessert can be ordered by phone, Chow Now, Postmates, Uber Eats, and Door Dash (platforms vary by location).
If ever there was a time to treat yourself to some treats, this is it.
