About The Sisters

My sister and I decided to open this store back in 1998 - because we love sweets. There are three parts to our store: making cakes and cookies, selling baking supplies, and teaching classes.

Since we have opened, we have made thousands of cakes, from birthdays to weddings. We really enjoy creating new designs that deCroupet's Specialty Cakes are perfect for every party!

We are a fully stocked cake supply store. We specialize in cake supplies, but also have a large selection of chocolate, cookie, and cupcake supplies. You should be able to find the tools to create your own goodies.

We also offer a wide selection of classes. Most are cake decorating, but we have specialty classes in flower making, cookie decorating, chocolate making and more. We have many classes for either adults or children. Check the "Classes" section for our current schedule of classes.

We (Janine and Cheryl) are both born and raised here in Los Angeles and have been baking for years. Cheryl graduated in Pastries at the Culinary Institute of American in New York. So, I leave all the baking to her. But I will always be involved in the design and decoration of the cakes. Our customers have dubbed us "the cake sisters", and we can't argue. We make cakes and we are sisters. Plus, its easier to pronounce then our store name deCroupet's (day-crew-pay).

Our Cakes

We love cakes! We've made so many cakes that you would think we
would be sick of them. Not so! We love them even more!deCroupet's Specialty Cakes

We custom design cakes for any and all occasions, whether it's a
birthday, graduation, or wedding.

Not sure of a design? We have a number of albums filled with
pictures of cakes we have made that you are welcome to look
through. This is a good way to get some inspiration for the cake
you want. You can create your own design or simply pick a cake
from a picture.

If you are looking for that special wedding cake design, we have
lots of ideas and pictures. We encourage brides (and sometimes
grooms) to search online or in magazines to get some ideas.
There are so many incredible cake designs available, the perfect
design for you is out there. Don?t Settle! We would love to design
your cake to match your wedding.

Since each cake is hand-decorated, and we absolutely refuse to lower our decorating standards, we
have a maximum amount of cake orders that we can take for any given day. While we hate having to
turn people away, it does happen. Please book your order as soon as possible. It's not uncommon for us
to be booked 2 weeks in advance.

You can be sure that the cakes taste as good as they look.
We have a large variety of cakes and fillings to choose from.
You can match any cake flavor with any filling. We have great
chocolate cakes, vanilla cakes, lemon cakes, spice cakes,
tres leche cakes and more. One of my personal favorites is a
chocolate cake with raspberry mousse with chocolate bits.
Everyone has their own tastes, we really try to have a cake for
everyone...even you!
