“Too good”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Their famous cake is too good. No one can resist the sugarry rum touched delight. Avoid like the plague if you are on a diet-lol.
Otherwise enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

“Cake from heaven”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

These rum cakes are moist, flavorful and fattening! Lucila's cakes have been a staple for years where I work, they are wonderful.

“Don't do it!”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

I ordered a 10 person cake and 24 cupcakes at Sweet Art by Lucila. After looking through their books of cakes they previously made I settled on one and told them I want this cake just on a round cake. Told them I wanted prime colors and it was for a boy baby shower so only boy colors and cloths (the decorations were of baby clothes on a clothes line and ABC blocks on top). For the cupcakes I want different primary color frosting with white baby clothes on top made of fondant.

When I picked up the cake and cupcakes. The fondant on the cupcakes were not white but all different colors and one was missing the decorations entirely. The cake looked nothing like the picture. The clothes were pastel colors and girl cloths! The cake was missing all the fun details that we liked so much in the picture and the blocks where poor quality.

With an hour till the party there was nothing they could do since they make the cakes at a different location.

The kicker is that they called a couple of days earlier and charged an additional $45.00 because the blocks, which were always part of the design. I demanded that money be returned which they did.

HORRIBLE experience and I will never use them again. The cake was dry and not worth the money. Don’t use them – they can’t even recreate a design that they previously made!
