A Day for the Turtles
If you weren't on Oahu over the weekend, you sure didn't miss much. It was the first weekend in ages where it poured rain all day Saturday and Sunday. Usually, if it's raining in Kailua where cakelava is based, we drive elsewhere on the island and it's perfectly sunny. On Saturday we took an hour and fifteen minute drive in the rain out to the North Shore to deliver our clients Janet and Todd's turtle/ocean themed wedding cake. It was still raining when we got there and our couple had decided to move forward with their outdoor wedding at Turtle Bay Resort. I cannot think of a more appropriate venue for a wedding with a turtle motif, and the staff at Turtle Bay seemed to think so too. For Janet and Todd's wedding cake, we chose a cream fondant base color with fern green turtles and "Aegean" blue wave pattern. It turned out very cute, even if the weather was no day at the beach. They chose our Rainbowlicious and Hawaii Five-0 flavors, rather than the obvious match, Totally Turtle. This was a wedding in Hawaii afterall. When we arrived, the guests tables were being set up and we took the photos below, because it tied in so well with their turtle/beach theme.
On our drive back to our studio, I was thinking of Janet and Todd and hope they had a wonderful wedding despite the rain. We'd like to wish them the best on their new life together and a safe flight back to San Diego.
