The foreign minister of Singapore tweeted out a picture of the cake presented to Trump at the luncheon today in Singapore.
Though Trump has been criticized for his failure to demand more concessions from North Korea before agreeing to a face-to-face meeting, which experts say gives Kim the sort of legitimacy on the global stage he desires, downplaying expectations does two things.
By sitting down with an American president - a longtime goal of North Korea's government - Kim's regime is advancing its effort to establish its "reputation, respect, and credibility as a nuclear weapon state", Green said.
North Korea has previously said it was willing to discuss denuclearization, but experts have expressed concern over the varying definitions of the term held by Washington and Pyongyang.
Trump and Kim landed in a city teeming with media and onlookers of all stripes, from foreign policy analysts like Kelly and Enos to former basketball star Dennis Rodman, who claims to be a friend of the two leaders.
Trump thanked the prime minister for Singapore's efforts to host the summit, the first-ever between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader, at a hotel on the city-state's resort island of Sentosa on Tuesday.
From there, the two will engage in more talks with advisers joining them through a working lunch. Kim can expect things like hand-cut crystal chandeliers, hand-painted chinoiserie silk wallpapers, 600-threadcount bed linens, paintings by Marc Chagall, a baby grand piano, separate living and dining rooms, an office, gym, and, of course, the hotel's renowned (among rich people) butler service.
Ahead of his much-anticipated meeting with Kim, the US President sounded optimistic and said the meeting would be a "one-time shot" at peace.

"Sending Kim Yong-chol to NY may serve to cut out a layer of middlemen - to get urgent clarifications and/or send a relatively unfiltered message to Washington that they are going to have to modify their approach if this is going to happen", Mr Pollack said.
On the summit's eve, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo drew a firm line, saying the U.S. plans to keep sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore Sunday afternoon, while US President Donald Trump flew in hours later in the evening.
He left early, and as he flew to Singapore, he tweeted that he was yanking the US out of the traditional group statement.
North Korea has changed its narrative in recent months. Mr Kim is reported to be flying out even earlier, at 2pm local time.
Kim told Lee: "The entire world is watching the historic summit between the DPRK and the United States of America, and thanks to your honest efforts. we were able to complete the preparation for the historic summit".
Pompeo, who has traveled twice to Pyongyang to meet with Kim, told reporters Monday that North Korea has conveyed a willingness to denuclearize.
Plans for the meeting almost foundered after Trump abruptly withdrew in May, citing North Korea's "open hostility" during negotiations.
The party's statement also said that Kim Yong-chol deserved "death by beating" and called on the government to block the visit. That impromptu session was aimed at salvaging the summit that Trump had said he was scuppering just two days earlier.
