Downtown resident and gallery owner Clark Woodford spots a new cupcake pastry shop called “abeautifullife” coming soon to 2nd/Spring near the Higgins condo building and the LAPD headquarters and dog park. The diminutive space facing Spring Street recently put up a “Coming Soon” sign in the window announcing their arrival into Downtown LA.
According their website, abeautifullife was started in 2011 by a mom and daughter team, Barbara and Aja Dawson. Although they’ve been doing business for over a year delivering to homes, schools and work, this will be their first brick and mortar location. An example of their menu includes: Chicken & Waffle cupcakes, Red Wine brownies, and Red Velvet cake pops. The Dawsons’ “untraditional approach to flavors and design transforms simple dessert into decadent, beautiful edible art.”
An opening late this year or early next year is likely.
