Rick Reichart Featured on KITV-4 News!
Last night Rick was featured on KITV-4 (ABC) News at 10pm. Rick was interviewed and filmed by news anchor Paula Akana recently, talking about cake design and his experience on Food Network Challenge, which is scheduled to air on Easter Sunday, April 4th, at 8PM EST for the first time and twice later that week. The segment ran just shy of five minutes and a lot of territory was covered in that time. If you missed the news last night, KITV has posted the video on their website. If you are a follower of our blog and/or Facebook, you may recognize some of the cakes shown in the video segment. You can see Rick making "Ohime" the sculpted dog for Alan's 50th birthday and see his reaction to the surprise gift his wife purchased for him. The couple emailed us photos shortly after the party, which we have included below, as well as their Thank You note:
Sasha & Rick,
Thank you for the incredible Ohime cake! Our friends & family were amazed
at this cake. There were some guests who actually touched it because they
thought it was a ceramic piece. The guava flavor was a bonus - it was
delicious. Sasha, you are insightful in finding the right cake. Rick, you
are truly an artist!
Bobbi & Alan M
Rick and I would like to thank Paula Akana of KITV and our clients Bobbi and Alan for their support. Working with a client as excited about her cake as Bobbi was is always a pleasure for us, and getting to see Alan's reaction both in the photos and on TV was the icing on our cake. Paula Akana is just the sweetest person and was so complimentary about our cakes. She is one hardworking lady, anchoring the 5pm, 6pm and 10pm news! Go Paula!
Thanks to everyone who tuned in and sent their congratulations on the segment.
Aloha, 'til next time!
