We love it when a client is satisfied with our work, and comes back for more of our cakes.  In this particular case we created both the wedding cake (a gorgeous red and gold cake for a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony wedding) and the groom’s cake (a 3-D Lakers basketball cake seen HERE) for Tessie & Deyson’s wedding back in 2010.

While they currently live in Los Angeles they came back to Hawaii to celebrate their son Braden’s first birthday with family and friends.  They contacted us for a Sesame Street and Sports themed birthday cake.  We created sugar figurines of Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster and Elmo and various handpainted sugar balls – footballs, basketballs, baseballs soccer balls.  For the flavor, they chose our Devils Food Chocolate Cake with Oreo Cookies n Cream filling.

Happy Birthday Braden – we hope to create many more birthday cakes for you!

Featured Wedding: Amelia & Tony’s Architectural Arrangement

We’d been working with Amelia for several months leading up to her August wedding to fiancée Tony.  When Amelia first contacted us she explained that she's a local girl living on the mainland while finishing her Masters degree in Architecture, in addition to planning her Hawaii wedding, so there were many phone calls and e-mails back and forth to coordinate everything.

 Amelia emphasized she wanted to create something "visually interesting", with a country and carefree style for their relaxed wedding set in the beautiful Waimea Valley State Park.  She put together an inspiration board which helped us get an overall feel for her wedding.

After discussing a few design options, Amelia loved the idea of creating a satellite cake display!  A satellite cake system is made up of multiple individual cakes of different sizes, decorated to be a cohesive, eye-catching presentation.  Amelia finally decided on 7 individual cakes to serve their 150 guests.  While many of the guests were local, Tony's family is from Greece and would be traveling very far to attend their wedding so they chose our Coconut Cake with Lilikoi Cream filling for a very tropical dessert.

Each cake was decorated with a different textured buttercream iced pattern, in different colors, on varying height cake stands and plates, several including fresh flowers for variety.  The cake table was finished with a beautiful burlap table linen, candles, flowers and seashells.  Amelia, being the architect she is, created this amazing computerized 3-D rendering of her cake display!  How awesome is this?

Amelia and Tony's cakes were set perfectly for their reception and they were thrilled with the end product.  Congratulations Amelia and Tony!
