  1. Passion for Pastry longtime loyal customer says:

    Passion for Pastry’s creations, by far, are phenominal. Their cupcakes are so far superior to D.C. Cupcakes, which are over-rated. Her cakes not only look delicious but taste great. We have been loyal customers for several years while her store was in the Boca Town Center Mall and look forward to the opening of the new, bigger store.

      Silly Hickman…. This is a valuable lesson for you. Whenever you are doing business, consider the audience.

      You made a very nice cake and I’m sure the pictures don’t do it justice. But lets be serious, you’re making a cake for a bunch of thugs who want a 6 foot tall cake with BLING. Notice the DD cake has the giant golden LJ on the top. Yeah, that’s pretty ridiculous, but like I said, consider your audience. The next time you make a cake for a basketball player/rapper/etc, you need to do the following:
      Make it <6 feet tall.
      Add lots of tacky gold/platinum.
      Place the number "22" on the cake somewhere.
      Preferably add some guns or pictures of drugs, etc.

      Now you know.

    Wow!! The Cake on the right.
    You can’t go wrong with Divine Delicacies Cakes. They create all of the Heat players birthday Cakes.
    The one on the left its Horrible looking and embarrassing.
    The one on the Right looks Elegant and Royal looking.
    Im glad they took out the one by Divine Delicacies Cakes.

    They are the best in Miami. Never heard on the other bakery.

    Good decision King James!!

  3. Maricel says:

    Why are you always hating on Lebron James?
    He obviously didn’t order the cake from that Boca Raton bakery. It was the Hotel. He didn’t ask for that lady to make him a free cake. He can buy 1,000 cakes if he wants!
    She is just bitter that her free cake was poorly looking. He had already order his cake and paid for it for the other place Devine Delicacies. Which by looking at their Facebook they create not only his past cakes but Dwyane wade, Chris bosh and his wife Adrienne.

    Stop hating on Lebron James just because a cake!
    He got the cake he wanted, this women it’s nuts…

  4. Jannelle says:

    From what I can see, the Miami bakery made the better cake.
    There is definitely no need to be so bitter about it. I mean, this lady sounds like a sore loser.
    The white cake is SO classy and elegant… The red one looks like anyone could’ve made it.

    Better luck next time, lady.

  5. Melissa says:

    Sounds to me like Devine Delicacies are the bitter ones. They must be pissed off someone else was asked to make the cake. Something is obviously missing from this story. Why was Passion for Pastry asked to make a cake last minute if Devine Delicacies was alreday scheduled to make a cake?
    From the looks of the cakes I would have to pick Passion for Pastry. Does anyone notice all the crooked lines and imperfections on the other cake?

    • James Joseph says:

      Thank you Melissa, the issue was not a war of cakes. The issue is with the media group that contacted a second person to do the cake. Apparently their Right hand didn’t’ know what the Left hand was doing. It’s not about the cake. I think the DD people are the ones turning this into a circus. What do they have to do with it any way? All they horrible comments originated from them.

  6. Jorgeheat says:

    EVERYONE STOP BELIEVING THIS LIES FORM THIS WOMEN. SHE’S BANANAS!!
    READ HERE THE REAL STORY AND PICTURE OF HOW HER CAKE WAS SINKING IN AND FALLING APART!! http://www.opposingviews.com/i/sports/real-story-behind-lebron-birthday-cake-controversy

    THIS CAKE IS NOT WORTH $3,000 LIKE SHE SAYS!! WHAT ARE YOU ON LADY? I WOULDNT EVEN PAY $1 FOR THAT PASTRY CAKE.
    LET THE GUY STICK TO HIS CAKE MAKER DIVINE DELICACIES LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO. THIS HAPPENS FOR BEING DESPERATE AND CRYING FOR ATTENTION. GO TO SCHOOL AND LEARN HOW TO CREATE A NICE CAKE WITHOUT FALLING APART. THEN MAYBE YOU CAN HAVE THE LUCK OF CREATING A CAKE FOR A CELEBRITY!!! BUAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA
    I’M LEBRON #1 FAN AND THIS WOMEN ITS JUST BUYING HER 5 MINUTES OF FAME AND ITS NOT FAIR FOR LEBRON TO GET DISSED!!

  7. MARICEL says:

    WHY WOULD DEVINE CAKES BE PISSED? HAE YOU LOOKED AT THEIR WEBSITE? THEY MAKE ALL THE HEAT AND CELEBRITY CAKES IN MIAMI.

    YOU ARE THE BITTER ONE WHO IS CRYING FOR ATTENTION. THEIR CAKE GOT THE ONE WHO GOT WORLDWIDE PUBLICITY PLUS THEY PROBABLY PAID BIG MONEY FOR THAT CAKE.
    THAT CAKE WAS ORDERED DIRECTLY FROM LEBRON’S TEAM.
    YOURS IN THE OTHER HAND BY THE HOTEL WHO THEY DONT HAVE ENOUGH COMUNICATION WITH LEBRON’S PEOPLE. BUHAHAHHAHAHA

    NICE TRY!!!!

    YOUR CAKE IS UGLY!!!!!!!!!
    I LOVED THE CAKE THEY USE. THIS WOMEN IS CRYING BECAUSE THE SHELBORNE HOTEL TRASH THAT PIECE OF SHIT

  9. FOREVERLEBRONFAN says:

    THAT CAKE ON THE RIGHT 100%%%%%%%%
    I STRONGLY BELIEVE THE BOCA RATON BAKERY DID AN UGLY ASS CAKE AND SHE IS NOW TRYIN TO GET ATTENTION. BUT I BELIEVE SHE IS RECEIVING A VERY BAD ONE. IN MY EYES I WILL CHOOSE THE MIAMI BAKERY FOR CREATING SUCH AN OUSTANDING CAKE FOR LEBRON. THEY TAKE THE CAKE ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    DONT FREAKING MESS WITH LEBRON JAMES!!! HE EATS WHATEVER CAKE HE WANTS AND WHAT???????????

    The woman is so jealous of the Miami bakery “Divine Delicacies” She is putting a fight over a little cake off. Get over it!! Your cake wasnt fit enough for Lebron James. I for curiosity went on Divine Delicacies website and saw better cakes than this lady. Plus they not only make cake s for Lebron James but to the other well known athletes like Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. You can see he loves their extravagant cakes. This women was just trying to get some attention by offering a FREE CAKE but at least try to make a cake that would be as NICE as he is used too. Anyways, I’m glad The Lebron People rejected and had instead Divine Delicacies Created. I read in another blog that lebron’s team had already order the cake from this bakery the next day and that the hotel was the one that didnt know and asked this women to create it for free. She needs to stop going to the media, she has no PRIDE what so ever!
    If I was her I would stick on creating ONLY CAKES for 1-6 year old cakes.
    PS:Lebron has the right to choose what ever cake he feels like to eat. He paid for the one his team ordered and didnt asked this mediocre cake. The cake that got the publicity was the BEST One! GO LEBRON!!!!!

      Shame on all you DD people. This Boca Bakery has been in business for 28 years. She is a respectable and loved business women in the Boca community. I’m so imbarrased for D.D. . Mrs. Hickman was asked to do this for free. She didn’t offer. How could you DD people do this? Be careful with the wrath of God. Haven’t the D. D. People had enough tragedy in their lives? I think so. There’s enough business for everyone, and so what if they used another baker besides D.D. Are they so threatened? It’s all so sad people. I’m a business person myself and love all my competitors. We are great friends.

    Hicksmans Cake for Lebron is a Joke. I don’t think the whole Chanel 7 thing was the right call from her. Just hired a lawyer. Everything behind this is more than money but her 2 minutes of fame. To be honest, this is not a good one. freebie for attention seems like desperation to me. this is what she gets. It wasn’t the other bakers fault and now this Crazy lady it’s trying to get the attention, bcuz she woke up new years looking at the Miami bakery cake next to Lebron.
    After this I would never buy cakes from her. She might sue me if I dont eat my cake and I rejected like Lebron lol

    STAY AWAY sign. So many important things happening in the world to care about this cake dilemma. She is clearly just bitter/Jealous

    Lebron James Should Sue the Shelborne Hotel for bad press. It wasn’t his fault and now he is getting blamed. Then the The Boca Raton Passion for Pastry in unethical for Creating this mess. Why would anyone EVER as a company do Business with her.

    Everything would have been great if they didn’t include this lady with that Stupid,ridiculous cake!
    Miami bakery in the other hand very classy. You haven’t heard of them saying anything bad or trying to talk to the media. They are probably by now just to the attention when creating celebrity cakes.

    Now Shelbourne Hotel PLEASEEEEE pay this late what she wants for she can Shut the Front door already!!!
