Cheap (cheap) and good fondant cake and royal icing cookies for small budget bday party.

I need simple but nice fondant covered cake and royal icing sugar cookies for a birthday party. Prices for the cookies I've seen are around 3.75 and cakes at 6.00 per person. Any suggestions eastside or westside?

Serrano Ham in Chattanooga?

My brother says it doesn't exist. I say there has to be a store or deli that carry spanish serrano ham. Who's right?

Where can I find Nina's foods or quesadillas like hers?

I'm also searching for a market with food steals and fresh produce. I know Grand Central, la Paloma and El Mercado, any other suggestions around East La and Downtown? Thanks

Fresh masa quesadillas near Venice/Santa Monica?

Where can I find fresh masa guisado quesadillas like those you can get at Echo park or ELA. Think Nina's, Antojitos Carmen, etc. There was a place in Culver City ( Sabor a Mexico) but I think it closed years ago. Any ideas?

Where can I find fresh Wedge Clams? a.k.a Bean, Donax or better yet ...Tellinas!!

I would love to know if there is a Seafood Market in Los Angeles that carries them. They are tiny with a smooth shell and very popular in Spain and Portugal.
