Page Boy Cap Cake: The Peninsula Beverly Hills

Cupcakes may be a passing fad, but the Page Boy Cap Cake at the Peninsula Beverly Hills is a classic dessert with staying power. Modeled after the white pillbox caps worn by Peninsula Hotel bellhops since the 1920s, these palm-sized sponge cakes are filled with tart passion-fruit mousse, covered in satiny white chocolate and finished with a fondant gold braid that makes the dessert a dead ringer for the real thing. The Cap Cake can be purchased individually or taken home after Imperial Afternoon Tea in the hotel’s living room. Rooms start at $540; 882 S. Santa Monica Blvd.; 310-551-2888;
