Today we’d like to introduce you to Luis Arias.
Hi Luis, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
My wife Adriana Salazar started making cakes as a hobby and I used to be a SFX makeup artist, we combined our hobbies to make cakes for our friends and family and we were getting a lot of attention and in 2014, we started as a home business, after some years learning the ropes in the cake business and receiving advice from more experienced cake decorators, we open our brick and mortar location on Downtown Lakeland on May 4th, 2018, We’ve been known for our life-size cakes and sculpted cakes that you only see on TV shows and we are very happy to be productive members in the community.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Sometimes people’s perception of cake decoration specifically is that it can be an easy task, it’s very time-consuming! We can spend long hours in order to achieve the specific look or texture we want in our cakes, but it’s a lot of love and passion for our customer’s satisfaction that encourages us to strive every day and go the extra mile.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We specialize in custom cakes, mostly sculpted or very detailed cakes that will make you say: I can’t believe it’s a cake! We also love to make wedding cakes, big or small, very unique or different, if you are looking for an “out of the box” cake, we can help you!
What makes you happy?
Spend time with our families and friends! The face of our customers when they don’t want to cut their cake because they love it!
