Lucy's Sweet Surrender

Marika of Lucy's Sweet Surrender on Buckeye Road in Cleveland, a traditional, old world Hungarian bakery that is one of the last vestiges of what was once the second-largest Hungarian enclave in the world, the Buckeye-Woodland area. The breads, cakes, pies and pastries at Lucy's, thanks to the skill of Marika and Mike Feigenbaum, are nothing short of heavenly. Marika here presents the Triangle Cake, a house-shaped confection baked in a special custom mold.
