Lana was amazing!! My cake was absolutely stunning and delicious! She made each tier out of two different flavors: vanilla and red velvet, simply because I could not decide between the two. It was the most decadent, delicious, and flavorful cake I have ever had. I received so... Read More many complements on how delicious the cake was and how it looked like a work of art. She made about two dozen sugar orchids to put on the cake, and they looked so real, that some people touched them to see if they were! I went into the consultation with about 50 ideas of what I liked, and she was somehow able to sort through all of them to make the perfect cake. Lana discussed all of the options with me, and always had a quick response for any questions I had. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Lana, see her beautiful designs come to life, and have the hands-down best cake I've ever eaten!
