Amazing cake designs! I cannot express how thankful I was to receive this cake for my wedding day. Everybody was asking me where I bought the cake and a lot of people were taking pictures with it! The best part was that the cake is absolutely delicious! Highly recommended.

What can I say about this extremely talented and dynamic duo? First thing you should know is your outta your mind if you don't book cakelava for your next event! Rick & Sasha create the most beautiful & stunning cakes ever. From the beginning to the end they were so professional and understanding of our wants and needs. There was a point where we literally had no clue what design we wanted to go with for our wedding cake and they were so patient with us in that process. That meant the world to us! It was then mentioned that Rick could actually surprise us and design something especially for us. Of course if we moved forward with this decision Rick needed our 100% consent. So the hub and I talked and came to the decision that we were all for Rick & Sasha designing our cake! And all I can say is that was theeee best decision ever!! The only thing we asked was that our cake be a "Disneyland" theme. Oh boy! We're we blown away! And that was just looking at the sketch! fast forward to the wedding day and as soon as we walked into our ballroom to mingle with family they were all saying "Did you see the cake yet?", at this point I was dying to see it! But our reception festivities was about to start and we didn't have time to fully take it all in until the actual cake cutting time! And my goodness our hearts literally jumped for joy! This cake was beyond our wildest dreams and unlike ANYTHING we've ever seen. This is what happens when you allow a master at his craft to be creative in their passion! You get nothing short of a masterpiece!! You will not regret booking Cakelava for your event! They take great care of you from beginning to end and your cake will leave you breathless! And did I mention how delicious it tasted! it tasted just as amazing as it looked! Seriously there's no need to look elsewhere when you found the "one"! No I'm not talking about your fiancé silly! I'm talking about your cake vendor!! Now that you found them what are you waiting for?!

Working with Sasha and Rick for my wedding cake was absolutely wonderful. They were very responsive to my emails, often getting back to me within hours despite how busy I imagine they are. They worked with my budget and designed a cake that was beautiful and reflected a lot of the inspiration photos I provided. The flowers that Rick sculpted were so beautiful that our guests refused to believe they were not real.
Not to mention, the cake was as delicious as it was beautiful. I’ve tried many wedding cakes that don’t live up to appearances, but this one was awesome! We had two flavors that my (now) husband and I selected, and they were even flexible and responsive when determining which tiers would be what flavor. I experienced some pain with other vendors in my wedding planning, but Cakelava was definitely not one of them! I will never regret booking Cakelava for my wedding cake and would recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful, unique wedding cake.

RIck and Sasha are the BEST! They designed my cake to fit in perfectly with my decor, which was very important to me. Rick is truly an artist and made the most gorgeous cake. He truly incorporated my basic ideas and make something better than I could have imagined. My guests were so impressed with both the design and more importantly, the taste. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing cake!

My only regret is that I didn't get to eat more of it:)

Exceptional! This is a great word for Cake lava. My wife worked with them throughout the whole time because she wanted to have a surprise groom cake for me, and oh boy was it! My wedding cake was a small three tier bamboo cake with some of the yummiest flavors we had ever had. My surprise cake was an actual Football with a Dallas Cowboys star logo on it!! It was awesome and everyone else thought so too. The cakes look great, your guests will not stop talking about them and as far as the pricing goes, c'mon, it's your wedding day! You should hopefully get married once and if you want the best, you have to pay for the best. Cake Lave, you are truly the best and I highly recommend you as a place to go for the best cakes around.

Mmmmm. cakelava. I had a couple of friends in Hawaii that absolutely love Cake Lava so I had to see what all the fuss was about when we were looking at wedding cake vendors (we evaluated about 6 different ones). Since I was living in Hawaii while wedding planning, I got to taste all the great flavors ahead of time. Woo hoo! Rick and Sasha made it easy and later provided a sketch of what the cake would look like. They were able to work within our budget too. The cake was modern-looking with beautiful flowers and tasted fantastic! It looked even better than we had hoped! We went with the non-colored rainbowlicious flavor and it was awesome! Since we had a dessert as part of the reception dinner, we ended up with a lot of leftover cake and the family was more than happy to “take care of it” the next day. We highly recommend cakelava.

Cake Lava are the absolute best on the island, in fact you would be hard pressed to find better on the mainland!!
Rick is so unbelievably talented and Sasha is so fun and helpful!! Our cake was a bit of a surprise to us, and came out spectacular!! We had vibrant colours which were hard to work with and wanted a Hawaii theme without the Kitch! Everyone thought it was the most amazing cake they have ever seen!
IN FACT OUR CAKE WAS ON TV!!! http://www.kitv.com/video/22744652/index.html
Thanks so much! You were the first vendor we booked and made the wedding process so much fun!
We loved our cake, and the taste was amazing too! (I actually tried one of each of the three flavours!)
The only Cake people you even look to book for the most important day of your lives!! You will be soo happy you did!

Cakelava was more than a bakery, they were artists. Although their creation was slightly on the higher end of cost, we wouldn't change our cake for anything. They created the cake in the exact manner which was described and even provided suggestions to make it look even better.
The ingredients were fresh and many guests were heard saying, "Wow, this is by far the best wedding cake I've ever had."
We would recommend this husband and wife team to anyone who values quality, originality, and sheer artistic ability.

Rick and Sasha Reichart are both a wonderful couple and incredibly professional. My wedding was planned within three months with both myself and my husband living on separate continents! Rick and Sasha helped make the experience much easier and more wonderful with their constant contact with us, their quick response times to our emails, and with their concerted effort to do their very best in every way to give us what we desired and make their part of our wedding day an absolute success. Not to mention Rick makes some of the most amazing cakes I have ever tasted. Cakelava has a unique variety of flavors and a unending supply of imagination. While they do specialize in intricate designs and unconventional flavors and are therefore a little more expensive, I highly recommend them.
