The layer cakes and cupcakes at Deep Sea Sugar And Salt are on the pricier side ($45 for a small cake), but they’re beautifully done and have interesting flavor combinations like pistachio with salt syrup/lemon curd or cornmeal with figs/balsamic curd/orange cream. The best one, however, is the London Fog. It’s an earl grey cake with earl grey honey syrup, bergamot mascarpone cream, and cream cheese frosting. Basically, it tastes like you’re drinking a cup of tea with sweetened cream. If you don’t feel like lining up before they open to buy slices a la carte, you can order a whole cake - just make sure to do it at least seven days in advance or two weeks if you want to be safe.
