When you visit this famous bakery — which has two Los Angeles locations, one in the Mid-City area (technically a stretch of Fairfax Avenue called Little Ethiopia) and one in the valley — you'll immediately notice a few standout stars among the fading celebrity pictures on display. Yup, the place is Hansen's Cakes, and the Kardashians are huge fans of the 97-year-old establishment.
Whenever there's a birthday, wedding destined for divorce (Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom), baby shower, or business achievement to celebrate, this is the place they call for some fierce buttercream action.
The youngest members of the family, like North West, started out getting cakes while still in the womb.
The girls love their mermaid cakes.
They have been making some edgier cakes for longtime fan Kylie Jenner, including one with her cosmetics company logo — and one with an image of her rolling her eyes and sticking her tongue out for her 20th birthday party.
Their allegiance to Hansen's is so well known by the family's fans that it is considered a loyalty pledge: If they try to ask for recommendations of other bakeries, as has happened, cheating allegations start flying fast and furiously. So it was only fitting that E! would order an impossibly huge cake from Hansen's to serve the ladies at the end of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians 10 Year Anniversary Special, which everyone immediately recognized and got excited to eat.
Decorated with a weaved pattern and roses, it resembled one made for Kylie's 18th — but, like, 100 times bigger. It was so large, in fact, it had to be wheeled out on stage.
Relationships may come and go — but in this family, cake is forever.
