To those ,who want to have a birthday ,anniversary or any other important occasion , I suggest you to order medium size Sakotis and when you receive it, unwrap and squeeze a bottle of wine, brandy etc. Wide bottom bottles (like Champagne)  do not fit.

Those can be fit in.







As you can see, those shape of bottles can easily fit in to a hole in Sakotis.: Gray Goose Vodka, Greek brandy Metaxa, Lithuanian beer , some Home brew  bottles, etc.  Just unwrap Sakotis ,squeeze bottle from the bottom and wrapped again . You also can add any greeting card.  (Gray Goose Vodka wrapped in the middle  ,second pick above)  Some bottles are wide and fit only 2/3 the way. Do not press Sakotis hard to avoid cracks . Just find any wrap (we did that with leftovers from cellophane we use to wrap the cake, but it can be anything else. You just need to wrap it around bottle making O-Ring witch will not let Sakotis brake. See pic below .  Then wrap Sakotis ant there you are , with nice preset to give to your friends, relatives or loved ones.

As you see, cell wrap around bottle do not et Sakotis slip and split . Pic on the right -shape of bottles can fit  2/3 way.  Jack or Jim Bourbon , Absolut vodka  will NOT fit there – sorry :)

You can also  buy dozen (or less) of roses and insert them  in to Sakotis, use cake as a vase and make a nice bouquet.  Roses are edible so there is nothing to worried about ruing the cake . You can see yourself -photos taken from the family reunion in Pennsylvania and wedding in Cleveland.

You can fill Sakotis with various candy in case it’s a kids birthday.

Our Sakociai can be used as a decoration for important celebrations and then consumed at the party after.

One of those celebrations was 30th anniversary our Lithuanian choir Exultate. You can make a nice bouquet at the funerals like this one :

Valentine’s  Day-There are a few samples how you can decorate Sakotis.

2012 December, right before Christmas, our Green Christmas Cake reached Hollywood. Our Lithuanian actress Ruta Lee enjoyed Sakotis


And also our Green Christmas Tree Cake reached capital of Lithuania, Vilnius right before New Year 2013.

We shared them with our family, relatives and friends.

Grand daughters Emilia and Gabriele









One Tree Cake was tasted by our close friend and famous Lithuanian journalist, Andrius Uzkalnis. As he mentioned me  me next morning after he received a cake – it was gone as soon it reached the dinner table. I think that was the best compliment for our handcrafted Sakotis.

Our basketball star Zydrunas Ilgauskas like our Sakotis

Last year two of our Large Cakes reached shores of Kangaroo land aka Australia.

If you did refrigerate it – leave for few days in the warm dry place until it dries completely (but do not dry it in Owen -it become dark brown)  If you freeze it -sorry,you just lost it. Tree Cake can be stored in the dry cool place up to 6-8 month in original cellophane wrapping. If unwrapped, it became dry faster and often can absorb odors . In those cases expect them in the taste of your Tree Cake.That’s why the cellophane wrap should be around it all the time.
