A close friend from high school recently got back in touch with me when we moved back to Rochester. She’s a frequent customer of Lento and was raving about my desserts and saw that I’ve started a cake business. Wanting to celebrate her son’s first birthday with something special, she first asked me if I could make 30 miniature block cakes for each guest.
I told her that it was feasible, but it would take me quite some time and cost more than a regular cake. So after catching up on life and the past ten years we, came to a decision on the cake. A chocolate diner cake with Italian vanilla buttercream.
We kept the block design and she really wanted the wood pattern with Janus’s name in colored blocks. On the day of the party I showed up to a closed in yard of toddlers at play and a pleasantly surprised family.
The wide eyes of her one year old and the smiles all around was a nice greeting to see old friends. Later I grabbed a few pic’s of the party with the best being the one of the satisfied child. A job well done.
