Impeccable. Perfection. Deliciously gorgeous. I am still in awe over this amazingly beautiful cake. Not to mention, the superior customer service and attention to detail is unmatched. Wish we lived in Vegas because we'd never have to look elsewhere for the perfect cake. Thank you guys for making my 40th birthday memorable! More...

Big 5 star review to cakelava!! I was looking for a place where I could get an spectacular cake for my husbands 50th bday. We are not locals to Vegas so I wanted to make sure I found the right place for what I was looking for: amazing cakes, fabulous designs and above all professionalism. At cakelava I found this and more! Form my first email Sasha was quick to contact me, we mainly had email conversations and one phone call, she was in top of everything. Originally I had an idea of a cake but Sasha and Rick provided some input and feedback regarding my design that I ended up doing a much better version of what I have originally thought of.We worked out the logistics, and even thigh I reached out to them 3 weeks ahead of the event they were able to accommodate my order. Needless to say, today we got to see and taste this beautiful master piece because that's what it was. My husband loved it , family was just in awed and even the restaurant staff were delighted to see this wonderful piece of delicious art. I told them cake lava did it! So if you really want to impress your best bet is to go with cakelava. Thank you Sasha and Rick ! Attached is a picture of this awesome cake ! More...

My husband and I had a Beatles themed 20th anniversary vow renewal in Las Vegas recently.  We put a lot of planning into the event, and I'd always wanted one of those amazing cakes that you see on TV.  I called Cake Lava, and it turned out to be the best decision.  Sasha listened to what I wanted, and she co-ordinated everything from cake tasting to instructions on how to cut it.  We had several conversations around what exactly I was hoping for, and she patiently listened and came through with everything I envisioned.  I brought my brother, who is a graphic artist, to the design and planning meeting with Rick.  He was so open to suggestions and even incorporated some of my brother's designs.  Rick himself is a truly talented artist, and it was obvious that he took this project seriously and put a lot of care into the creation of my cake.  On the evening of the party, Rick and Sasha even delivered the cake personally!  I can't say enough good things about this experience.  The cake was really the star of our party!

I chose Cake Lava because of their stunning portfolio, but our spectacular wedding cake and their outstanding customer service surpassed my already high expectations. The cake was customized to match my bouquet flowers, and they looked so real that my maid of honour almost refused believe that were hand-crafted, until I assured her that they were for the 3rd time! This really makes it incredibly special when you put a flower on each of your guests’ plates, and they get to appreciate the remarkable artistry, talent and time that were needed to make them.

I was also equally impressed by Sasha’s incredibly caring, personal and attentive customer service. She invested a lot of time to answer all of my emails in detail and honestly made me feel like her most important customer, even calling me several times to discuss the design, the choice of cake platter, and finally the delivery and safe handling. Both Sasha and Rick personally delivered the cake at the venue and greeted us and our guests in such a friendly manner. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outstanding service we received, and the stunning cake that will forever grace our wedding photo album!

Oh, my...these were the nicest and most creative designers. Rick is such an artist and designed the flowers to match my real flowers. He captured the colors perfectly. I have never seen such realistic flowers. Sasha made everything work - she is kind, caring, detailed and professional. I couldn't have asked for anyone to be more precise or caring. And they both delivered the cake personally! This is a wow experience and a wow cake. You will not be disappointed. More...

Sasha and Rick are absolutely amazing! I am from California and was having a 30th birthday bash for my fiancé in Vegas. I tend to have trust issues with chefs and bakers, so I always go and try their food and plan out the logistics in person. However, I wasn't able to do this and had to fully rely on prior yelp reviews. BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE!!! I communicated with Sasha via email for a few days to describe what I wanted and the unique details I wanted for my fiancé's cake. Sasha took the time to explain what I could get with my budget, delivery costs , and when last minute details popped in my head she was sure to make it happen seamlessly.Once we got the cake, everyone was simply amazed. The details were spot on and delivery was perfectly on time. I could not thank Sasha and Rick enough for such beautiful work. In fact, we didn't even cut the cake until the next day because we wanted to preserve it for pictures/ to admire. But when we did the flavors were on point. The slices were huge and I had to stop myself from having more than 2...Now, back in California, I'm dreaming of the day I can order from them again! I may just treat all of my wedding guests to their delicious flavors :-) More...

If you're looking for an amazing cake for any occasion, look no further. It's easy to see from this Yelp page why we trusted CakeLava to make us an unbelievable WOW cake for our recent corporate conference in Las Vegas. It was to be a replica of our first company restaurant, featuring our founder and the first hostess in the front scene, to honor our 40th anniversary. To say they delivered on their promise is an understatement.Beyond the incredible cake, I can't say enough about how patient and accommodating Rick & Sasha were through every stage of the design process, from planning to execution. As a team, they are incredibly talented, earnest and thoughtful about every detail and every aspect of the process, and committed to it's success. We were an extremely demanding client, who wanted to get every detail just right,  and they were just as dedicated to the project as we were, which I can't properly convey my appreciation for in this review, although I wanted to try. As the event got closer, we also had several last minute "what if" requests, ALL of which they executed beautifully and on time for our event. Thanks to their willingness to go above and beyond, and do whatever it takes, the cake was an absolute hit, and people were in awe of the attention to detail and talent behind it. Last, but certainly not least, they assisted us with a delivery to our hotel venue during an unexpected high-security situation, where we had to find an alternate storage space, and an alternate route to get to it. Needless to reiterate, there is NOTHING that CakeLava can't do! We are forever grateful for their assistance, and would hire them back in a heart beat for our next project. More...

Absolutely fantastic! Had a cake made for my boyfriends birthday, and it was a huge hit! My boyfriend was amazed by it, and so were his friends and all the staff at STK.  the staff at STK even said that they see a lot of cool cakes but it was the best one they had ever seen!  Thank you Sasha and Rick! I will absolutely be ordering from Cake Lava again! More...

Sasha and Rick were awesome! I contacted them about 2 weeks before my trip to Vegas for my girl's birthday... and they were super helpful! I asked for an Alexander Wang themed cake. Had the vision in my head and sent some inspo pictures + some direction, and they nailed it PERFECTLY!Sasha was so nice, helpful, and super attentive to detail. She helped me plan everything from design, to flavor, and even delivery to the hotel (for a fee - but so worth it). Safe to say I will keep them top of mind for custom cakes next time I need one in Vegas. THANK YOU SO MUCH! :) More...

Absolutely STUNNING cakes -- and delicious too! My sister went to cakelava to order this cake for my 30th birthday. It was done so beautifully and tasted amazing.

Cakelava is AMAZING. We used them for our wedding cake and it was gorgeous and incredibly delicious! We contacted them several months before our wedding and sent them what we were looking for and some of our wedding colors and decor. They responded quickly with a gorgeous cake and a really great price. We get to the wedding reception and see the cake, and we were completely blown away. A number of guests thought it had to be an art piece decoration and couldn't be our cake! When we get to the cake cutting and people start eating it, the flavor and quality were outstanding. I can't recommend Rick and Sasha enough - everyone should get their cake from them! More...

I had a destination wedding in Las Vegas and needed to find a bakery there to make my wedding cake. I found Cake Lava via Instagram and after reviewing the website gave them a call. I spoke with one of the owners, Sasha, whom instantly made me feel both comfortable and confident that this was the bakery to use for my wedding cake. I ordered a 2 tier semi-naked gold foil accent cake and requested burgundy and navy flowers to match the color scheme and it came out even better than I could imagine. The cake was beautiful on the outside and the flavors where also delicious!! The cake was delivered to the suite and I HIGHLY recommend you consider using cake lava!! More...

Rick & Sasha were wonderful to work with! From the initial response time after contacting them via their website, to coordinating the design, to our tasting, to delivery and set up, to post wedding congratulations, they were so attentive to our needs. They were incredibly warm and their excitement about being part of our wedding was contagious! The flavors were incredible, the cake was perfectly moist, and the frosting was not too sweet or sugary. It has been a month since our wedding, and people are STILL talking about the cake! We can't wait to have an anniversary cake made next year! More...

I reached out to cakelava after finding them on yelp while I was in the process of planning my husband's 40th birthday in Vegas.  I knew I wanted a custom Las Vegas themed cake.  I immediately reached out to cake lava for pricing and cake ideas and Sasha immediately responded to my email.  We agreed on a cake style and secured our date.  It was such a pleasure working with Sasha and Rick over the 3 months of planning my husband's surprise.  The cake arrived on time at the restaurant and the presentation was so amazing.  The cake was so delicious!!  Sasha and Rick were very friendly and attentive during this entire process.  If you are looking for a bakery who can make creative and delicious custom cakes, please look no further than cake lava!!

Sasha and Rick are the best! The initial consult and cake tasting (with the most delicious cakes) really sold us as they are organized, creative, professional, and friendly! We booked our wedding cake and then I also booked the wedding shower through them so we got to see a wedding style cake and also a sculpted cake. Rick is truly amazing and talented as a decorator, and Sasha and so easy to work with and responds immediately to any questions we had. We will definitely be using them for all our future cake needs!! More...

I have to leave a review because I was literally blown away by their cake! My boyfriend ordered on what would seem short notice, but they came through!

Cakelava absolutely blew my mind with the awesome cake they made for my Dads 50th Birthday! I sent them a picture of what I wanted with some changes and they completely exceeded my expectations! Everybody at the party could not believe what we got was an actual cake! I could have no been happier and my dad the look on his face said it all! He was amazed by the cake as well and kept telling me how much he loved it! Thank you so much! I am seriously so thankful and my heart is so full because of this cake! More...

Cake Lava is as good as it gets. From the moment we did a tasting for our wedding cake we knew we found our bakery. We ended up ordering two cakes prior to our actual wedding (one for a friends birthday party and another for a Christmas party) prior to our actual wedding and have subsequently ordered another cake for another party later this year. Rick is a try artist. He re-created one of our favorite bottles of wine as a Groom's cake a people did not believe it was real (and it was delicious). Our wedding was back in April and people are still talking about the cakes today. His cakes not only look amazing but they taste amazing as well. Sasha is very professional and thorough and walks you through every detail. Delivery is very professional and they are even in uniform when they deliver. Cake Lava has become our go to bakery for custom cakes. More...

Sasha and Rick are so talented and provide amazing customer service. They were able to create a custom Game of Thrones masterpiece for my fiancé's surprise birthday party on a two week deadline (mind you that the cake was serving 10-12 people). Everyone, especially my fiancé, was floored with the quality and care put into creating such an awesome cake! It was so delicious too! They've pretty much snagged me as a life-long customer!! We can't wait to begin planning our wedding cake with them! Thanks again y'all!! More...

Rick and Sasha are seriously the dynamic duo of everything cake related. They are incredibly professional; incredibly kind; and incredibly talented. I am not usually one to like wedding cake... it normally doesn't do anything for me. That all changed when we were referred to CakeLava. I do not have enough positive things to say about Cakelava.... our wedding cake was AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS (seriously. ALL of our guests commented on how delicious it was), and the cake was also AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL. No one could believe that the flowers on our cake were HANDMADE by Rick! He has some serious talent. Rick made our vision come true... and even added an amazing watercolor technique to our cake (I had never seen that before, and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!!)

We highly, highly, highly recommend CakeLava to anyone looking for a unique wedding cake! Thank you both!

I recently ordered a Louis Vuitton brief case cake last month ( actual picture of the cake is posted in the photos ) .I gave them some pictures of other Louis Vuitton brief cakes on Pinterest I found as samples of how I wanted the cake to look like. The cake Rick and Sasha made turned out better than the Pinterest photos ! It was so realistic in person!! We couldn't believe everything was edible on the cake. It was so beautiful that we were hesitant to cut the cake up to eat. Rick and Sasha are truly talented. Sasha is very well to work with and gives amazing customer service. I'll be coming back :) More...

I reached out to cake lava for a custom cake for my boss's birthday. Each year we have done a customCake but this year tops it all. I inquired about a cake I had in mind. Sasha immediately got back to me within 10-15mins. I was actually shocked thinking I'd get a response later or even the next day. I sent somePhotos I found on Pinterest and emailed to her. She gave me a quote and said she couldMake it better. Which we all always hope for. WellLet me tell you she did !!  100x better. She delivered it on time even when I switched the day for a day earlier than I needed it. They were very professional , reasonable on prices and delicious. I will never goTo another cake place to get a customCake other than here. I wish I could give themA million stars! Thanks again to Sasha and her team for making his birthday amazing . Xoxo More...

My husband and I wanted a unique cake, we both love star wars and both Sasha and Rick took so much time to get ideas, thoughts, and just ran with it from there.  Our wedding cake was absolutely without question, a work of art and to say it tasted great, not even able to put into words.  Rick and Sasha are just amazingly wonderful, very down to earth and you can tell they really put everything into what they do.  Just above and beyond our expectations, made the whole wedding day just beyond memorable.   Thanks Rick and Sasha, you guys are the best!!!

Absolutely the best decision we made. We made a last minute decision to get married while on vacation in Vegas. Cakelava was the most responsive of all the vendors we were looking at and totally came through for us with 3 weeks notice. I was very undecided on what I wanted, but they were patient and worked with me so I could have a nice cake that fit my budget. The cake looked great and tasted awesome. Everyone loved it. Thank you guys! More...

I reached out to Cakelava after seeing their great Yelp reviews to make a cake for my nephews 8th birthday. On a short notice they were able to create a cake that wow' me and my nephew. Turned out great! Tasted delicious. They even included candles! Everything was to perfection. Sasha was very quick with her email responses which I loved. Shows she's serious about her work and wants to be there for her customers. Rick designed the cake and it was on point. I had an issue with my printer so I wasn't able to print out the invoice that needed to be signed and Sasha totally understood and I was able to sign at the place the day I picked up my cake. All in all, I totally recommend them and will be using Cakelava again. Thanks guys! More...

It would be impossible to give higher accolades to the entire process of working with Sasha and Rick. Since they are relatively new to Las Vegas, I had a news article and a website as a guide. Check out their site and see for yourself why it was an easy decision to have them create our Patron cake for a very special birthday (I have posted a picture of the cake as well). Not only did it taste incredible, but I have never been to an event where everyone in attendance got up with smart phones in hand to snap pictures of that amazing cake! If you are looking for a cake that will be a show stopper, then you need go no further than Cakelava! I can't wait for the next special occasion to see what they'll create for us next. More...

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?! More...

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:)

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.

Cakelava were PERFECT for our needs! Our cake was stunning (an original design) and delicious.

We are from Australia and we got married in Oahu in October 2010. Our communications with vendors were through email and it was was therefore important that all our vendors provided responses that were detailed and prompt. Despite being a very busy business, Sasha always responded promptly and in a professional, yet very friendly manner.

Our cake was an original design to match the Japanese paper that we used for our invitations. They asked us to send a sample of the paper, and a spare invitation. They designed the cake, sent us a sketch of this design, and provided advice when my partner also had grand designs for the cake.

I screamed in delight when I saw our cake at our reception. It was stunning and beyond our expectations. And, it tasted devine!!

On the downside, they are pricey. Also, they do not send the contract until after the deposit is paid. So we did not know that their cake must be the only cake served during the event, until we had paid our deposit. Because of this rule, we had to make changes with our reception venue regarding deserts served.

I highly recommend Cakelava. However, future brides should request to see the contract before any money is paid to see exactly what they're committing to.

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.

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!

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.

Cake Lave makes beautiful cakes for any occasion, and our wedding cake was spectacular. They took the idea of using the design of our invitations on our cake, and it came out beautiful. The cake was not cheap and we spent more than we wanted. Also for the price, the taste of the cake was not the best. They had a lot of flavors to choose from, but the quality was not where i thought it should be, a little dry. But it was the look that mattered the most at the time! More...

Sasha and Rick at Cakelava are a wedding-cake-godsend! All you need to do to be convinced is visit their website (www.cakelava. com) and you'll see what I mean. They can literally do anything you ask for. What you see is literally what you get. I had never tasted a tasty wedding cake until my own wedding. I also surprised my husband with a groom's cake with a completely different flavor, and one was better than the other. We did all the planning from Washington, DC and I never had any issues communicating with Sasha. If you are having a wedding on Oahu, you HAVE TO go with Cakelava for any of your baked goods needs.

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. More...
