Cole's Angry Birds

With over 100 million downloads, you’d have to say the iPhone game, Angry Birds is pretty popular, even among 5 year olds (which surprised me).  So when Cole asked his mom, Pinky of Pinky Photography for an Angry Birds themed party for his 5th birthday she came straight to us.

For those of you unfamiliar with the game (and beware it’s seriously addictive) players use a slingshot to launch birds at pigs stationed on or within various structures, with the intent of destroying all the pigs on the field.

We used the scene of the birds attacking the pig trapped in the wooden and cement beams to create Cole’s Angry Birds theme cake.  The flavor was Devils Food Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cream filling with all handmade sugar decor, figurines and topper.

And check out the budding photographer – you can tell he gets it from his mama!  If you’re ever in need of an amazing wedding, lifestyle or senior portrait photography please check out Pinky Photography – she’s super talented and a wonderful person.

We also created Cole’s Race Car Cupcake Tree for his 4th birthday last year, seen here.  Thanks for letting us be a part of this special day.  Happy Birthday Cole!

Sunset Ranch Launch Party: Ceremony Design

To showcase another of Sunset Ranch's many venues, they created a ceremony site on the main lawn.  Again I love all the little details that went achieving this romantic, rustic look - the feather and twisted branch chandelier, flowers in cowboy boots , an aisle treatment of twisted branches - reminds me of tumbleweed, roping.  Just beautiful...

We created two cakes for the event.  The first was a two-tier white fondant cake with gold fillagree side designs, fresh orange rose topper with crystal butterfly picks.
The second was a two-tier light yellow fondant cake with yellow sugar carnations and a round impression trim.

Sunset Ranch Launch Party: Barn Design

Awhile back we had the pleasure of working with Sunset Ranch, a 30-acre property located atop Waimea Valley on Oahu's North Shore for their Launch Party.  The privately owned ranch has recently been protected with one of Hawaii's first private conservation easements, so it will remain preserved forever.  At Sunset Ranch they believe strongly in furthering land conservation and self-sustainability in Hawaii and have now opened the property up for events, farming, a nursery and horsemanship programs.

The ranch itself is BEAU-TI-FUL!  With gorgeous views, and so many different venues (both outdoor and indoor) for a wedding, or special event.  For their barn design, we were asked to create a modern wedding cake detailed with rustic and romantic elements to accompany the beautiful tablescape.  For the modern element we created a 2-tier hexagon shaped cake, and accented it with handmade white whimsical sugar flowers on a light ivory fondant for a soft, romantic and rustic blend.

I absolutely love all the little details that Shilhi from Passion Roots put into this design.  The color palate of cream, peach, and pink with accents of eggplant was stunning.  Shilhi wanted to incorporate a softness with the flowers, and balance it out with a deep, lusciousness of grapes and plums (reflecting the produce from a farm, and honoring all the hard work that goes into farming).  And the influence of owls, fruit, wheat and cork were perfect additions for a "rustic elegance" themed wedding.
