The Torrance Bakery has been a South Bay staple for 25+ years. It is best known for its cakes.
For almost 30 years, The Daily Breeze newspaper has invited friends, neighbors and customers to vote for their favorite people, places and things.
A few weeks ago, we saw that the Torrance Bakery was recognized as the best bakery in South Bay (Southern California) by Daily Breeze.
We are new to the area. When someone wins an award, we are always curious about WHY. So, we made our way down to Torrance to find out what the buzz was all about.
There was a line outside when we went but it went quick. There were tables outside too but everything was taken.
We picked up a bunch of stuff: A slice of cake, a cupcake, a cookie, a macaroon, a vanilla donut w/ sprinkles, a plain croissant and a bran muffin.
They packed it all quite well. We refrigerated all the bakery items and consumed them over a whole week. My personal favorite was the chocolate ganache cake - no cream, just chocolate and fudge, just fabulous. My daughter's favorite was the cupcake with a colorful marshmallow candle on the top.
Everything worked out perfectly. Lovely experience. We'll go back someday.
