Hidden in the Fairfax District you'll find the small, yet abundant, Cake Monkey Bakery.  I follow them on Instagram, so I'm always craving (and drooling) over all their posts. Everything always looks so delicious!

Over the rainy pre-Valentine weekend, I had a major sweet tooth - but when don't I? - and I finally decided to check them out. I wanted EVERYTHING. Knowing this wasn't possible, I tried to select what I really would enjoy. There's one case full of beautiful, miniature cakes but one of the workers told me that it would be best to eat it after an hour. Oh no - I couldn't wait. I'll get one next time. I chose the "love is love" sugar iced cookie mostly for its picture worthiness but it did end up being a sweet little cookie. I also chose the toffee blondie. So good! It had a chewy toffee top and a moist cake bottom. There were some nuts for texture and a little salt thrown in. Perfect! Whether it's cold or hot, I always prefer iced drinks. I asked if the mocha was sweet and was told that it was sweeter than most because it's made with ganache - yum!!! About two scoops of a decadent chocolate ganache were blended with espresso and milk to make my mocha. I loved it. It was absolutely delicious and mixed well with the espresso. No bitterness, not overly sweet, just perfect. Quite possibly the best I've had.

If you're looking to cure your sweet tooth blues or need a chocolate pick-me-up, go check them out.
