Religious Cakes for April -- From Jesus Christ to Mazel Tov

Nothin' gets an Easter party started like biting into a frosty slice of

Big Baby Jesus; and a seder ain't a seder till you're cutting into a prayer shawl (see next page for image).

Sweet Art by Lucia, a four-branch company and winner of our Best Cake Artist for 2000, amazes with their creations. Photorealism, chrome effects, shaping, setups... you name it, they do it. Their website is evidence of a niche market in religious-themed cakes. Easter is coming up on Sunday, April 12. Passover kicks off at sunset on April 8 and runs through the 15th. When the holidays pass, we'll call and see how many cakes they sold.

Here are some religious themed art cakes from the Sweet Art by Lucila website gallery....

Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.


Lucila's has made cake versions of everything from giant lipsticks to fish, whiskey bottles, hats, jewelry boxes, and even cop shields (see right). You can find out more about these creations if you go to their South Miami location (7534 Bird Rd.) for breakfast. They just started opening at 8 a.m. and serving $2 breakfast sandwiches and $3 breakfast packages.

Thanks to South Florida Gourmet for the tip off on the breakfast deals. 

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
