On may 30, 08 paid cake divas(they make celebrities cakes, been featured in Jet magazine, wedding guide and wedding channel etc) to make a Iron Man cake from a picture I personally bought in to them.
They said they can make it, paid them $230.00 (included the $80.00 deliverely fee to my 11 yr old son birthday party). 1 week later (day of party) the cake arrived 15 minutes before the party started (which I was told it will arrive 2 hours before). When I arrived there with the party group, we opened the cake to cut it and it was not the cake I paid her to make.
My son was upset, didnt eat any of the cake, and the cake didnt even look nowhere near Iron Man, it look like Tin Man. It was ugly. We cut that cake and the top of it was so hard, you could of took a knief and hit it and it did not break.
The inside of the cake was hard, like it was made about 3 days ago (and she said she makes her cake the same day and she lied). I called them and 3 days went by and they still didnt call me back and on the 4th day, I got the owner Leigh Grode and told her about that bad cake. I was so embrassed with my family, friends, coworkers there.
She asked me to bring her another picture and I drove over there and gave her another picture, she said it will be ready tomorrow and I told her just refund the money and she said she will make a new cake instead. 2 hrs pass she called back and I was sick, so she talked to my mom, asked her what type of filling I wanted in the cake and I said none, so she said "she never heard of a cake with no filling in the middle" and my mom said thats what my daughter wants, and she said she cant have the cake ready for the next day because she has a lot of celebrities to do cakes and well she will get to it next week and my mom said no and she said well " I was doing your daughter a favor by making the cake cause "I dont have to make the cake" and my mom told her "If you made it right the first time, you wouldnt have to make another one".
Leigh said well as far as she concerned she aint making another one she dont have time and she does not have to listen to this and hung the phone up in my mom face. I called her back and she hung up in my face and that was the last, I talked to her. She is a rude very unprofessional jewish owner. She has a very smart mouth on her and I guess she figured (African Americans dont have nothing). Well I took pictures of that ugly cake she delivered (for my proof for court), See I am a business owner myself and I will teach her a lesson, she cant just pop off at the mouth, hanging up in people face and think its all over cause it aint. In case you didnt know, where she is located in culver city, she is in a office space thats runed down off the street of Pico blvd.
Dont the health department have to come out and check places like that? I wanted to know how she cooking in there and its a office space. I will never recommend her to anyone.
