In November we were invited by the Royal Hawaiian Hotel to create a special cake for an engagement photo shoot.  The photo shoot featured Jacqueline & Nick getting engaged over a romantic dinner at the luxurious Azure Restaurant at the Royal.   You can view a slideshow of their romantic wedding at the Royal Hawaiian at Perfekt Photo.  We wish them both a lifetime of love and happiness!

The Royal Hawaiian was built in 1927 and its iconic pink fa├žade has gained it the nickname the “Pink Palace of the Pacific”.  The Royal’s beachfront property on Waikiki Beach is a member of Starwood Hotels & Resorts coterie of Luxury Collection properties.  Over the last year the property underwent a renovation to its interior design.  The hotels stunning historic architecture coupled with redesigned modern decor offer couples looking for their fabulous destination wedding or intimate Waikiki nuptials a truly luxurious setting.  Get married at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and you’ll have nothing short of first class accommodations.  Remember to ask about A Cake Life as a preferred cake vendor for destination wedding couples.

Katie & Bobby's Wedding


It was an absolute pleasure working with fun and laid back Katie & Bobby for their November wedding at the luxurious Oceanfront Oasis Estate.  Karine Matsumoto of Seasons of Life Wedding & Event Planning introduced us to Katie & Bobby, a young San Francisco couple who were planning their Hawaii destination wedding.  Katie's vision of her wedding was a colorful party where their 70 guests could have fun.

For their wedding cake, Katie knew she wanted cupcakes instead of a traditional tier cake so her guests could party the night away and grab dessert at their leisure.  Katie decided on this modern style square arrangement that held 260 mini cupcakes made up of 9 different flavors.  Some of the flavors she chose were Red Velvet w/Cream Cheese icing, Devils Food Chocolate w/Chocolate Buttercream, Coconut Cupcakes w/Buttercream icing and Mocha Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream.  To top off this stunning cupcake tower was a 6" Yellow Butter Cake filled with Lilikoi Cream and iced with Buttercream.  The arrangement was decorated with colors from Katie and Bobby's wedding palette of turquoise, orange and chocolate brown.  Several of the mini cupcakes were topped off with delicate, handmade blue hydrangea flowers to match the couples invitations and orange bauhinia orchids matching the floral decor were placed around the cake topper.

The cupcakes were a big hit with Katie & Bobby and their guests.  Katie left this review on our vendor profile:

"Kristin made our beautiful cupcake tower for our wedding. Nine delicious flavors of over 250 mini-cupcakes arranged artfully with a small square topper - vanilla with lilikoi filling (heaven in cake form) - amazing! Our guests absolutely loved the cupcake tower idea and thought the cupcakes tasted better then most wedding cakes they'd had - even a Wienstock cake!  Kristin was an absolute pleasure to work with - she's responsive, creative, smart and can create whatever you envision. And if you're suffering from wedding decision making overload she'll gently lead you in the right direction. Cannot recommend her highly enough!"

 We had a lot of fun making Katie & Bobby's wedding cake.  Congratulations!  We wish you many years of love and happiness!
