Chef La Porta, Starlette Cake

France's celeb favorite confection is now available stateside.

Parisian restaurateur Michèle La Porta created a cake with no sugar, no flour, no eggs, no butter and no fat back in 1985—and it became known as the Starlette Cake for its popularity among stars like Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and model Karen Mulder.

Recognizing there's a huge market for the guilt-free sweet in the U.S., too—and L.A. in particular, bien sûr, La Porta has brought her special concoction here, at last!

The cake made an appearance at Stevie Wonder's birthday party in L.A., the Amour Oscar reception (which also happened to be Emmanuelle Riva's birthday) and at a party for Zsa Zsa Gabor, thrown by her husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt

The fat-free favorite can be yours as well: It's available at the Luxe Hotel in Beverly Hills (after an official launch party there earlier this month), Monsieur Marcel restaurants, West Hollywood's Sur Restaurant and Bar, nine locations of Perry's Café all up and down the beach—and many more.

Bon appétit!
