Last week we had the privilege of making the cakes to celebrate the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce's 110th Anniversary.  Attendants at the celebration enjoyed pupus, live music, Chamber member exhibitor tables, a drawing for a free to trip to Las Vegas and a complimentary Flora-Dec gift card. =)

The Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce is a major business organization and its members represent some of Honolulu's largest businesses, industries and professions.  The Chamber was formed in 1900 and was originally named the Merchants Association.  In 1912 the Association was renamed to the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce and has since worked to develop business and trade relations between Hawaii and Japan.  Today the Chamber is dedicated to strengthening business and economic development for its members while preserving cultural history. 

Congratulations to the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce on its 110th Anniversary!
