A Pasadena Lark

A Pasadena Lark

It’s like cake minimalism. White on white with minimal dashes of color and texture. It’s Lark Cake Shop on Hill Avenue just north of Washington Boulevard in Pasadena. We’d been chatting over a cuppa latte with a friend around the corner at Lavender and Honey. Looking to while away more time before heading home and […]
