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.
