Beautiful Things Come in Small Packages

www.cakelava.com
I practically gasped when I saw this cake, a reaction that is not reserved for cakes of a larger stature.  The level of detail really blew me away!  Someone recently commented on our blog, "Rick, what goes on in that brain of yours?" and I can tell you when his thoughts aren't in the gutter they reside in an unfathomable realm of imagination.  How he gets from point A (cake) to point B (finished product) is anybody's guess.  I've stopped guessing. It's better when you let creativity unfold and just enjoy.

I certainly didn't know when the order came in and the only direction given by our client was "vibrant colors" that Rick would design this gorgeous multi-layered, super detailed, adorable cake.  The party for the birthday girl involved a small amount of people, but we wanted the WOW factor to be big.  Bigger is not always better and beautiful things absolutely do come in small packages!

Thank you so much, Sasha and Rick, for the amazing job you did on my mom's cake! I wore a big smile, admiring the cake, all the way from your shop to the restaurant where we enjoyed the cake.

At the restaurant, the cake literally turned heads! One of the servers who wasn't even taking care of our table, remarked about it being an "Ace of Cakes" kind of cake. (No, it's BETTER!) :o) Even the kitchen staff came out to see Rick's creation. We shared a piece of the cake with the servers, and after seeing AND tasting it, they all sent their compliments to the chef!

Thank you, Sasha and Rick, for another show-stopping, tummy-pleasing, BEAUTIFUL cake filled with love!

your fan,
mona

Mona! That is a LOT of praise for the cake! We are SO happy to have had the opportunity to make the cake for you mother, and *thrilled* to hear how much everyone enjoyed the cake! We're sorry we missed the reaction, but you described it so vividly, it's like we were there! XO S + R
