Happy Halloween! -- and Last Day to Vote!

Happy Halloween everyone! We're going the unconventional route for Halloween and rather than feature one of our Halloween themed cakes, I chose a wedding cake incorporating the color orange we made this month for our couple Holly and Paul. Holly and Paul flew in from Manhattan to have their tropical inspired wedding at one of the lushest, most tropical locations on the island, Moli'i Gardens on the Windward side of Oahu. You can probably tell from their cake that they had a Bird of Paradise motif at their wedding with dominant orange and green tones, but what made this wedding more unsual is that Holly and Paul, who are huge baseball fans wanted to incorporate their love of baseball and specifically their teams, NY Mets and the SF Giants into the wedding. We made custom handcrafted figures of Holly and Paul and as requested, put them in an outfit suitable for a baseball game -- jeans and t-shirt for Paul and jeans and an orange tank top for Holly. When we delivered their cake, we noticed the linen was blue (Mets, perhaps?) They chose a flavor that would be as striking on the inside as the cake was on the outside, our signature, Rainbowlicious flavor, and Strawberries Chantilly for the top tier. Holly and Paul's wedding was another gorgeous event designed by the team at Weddings by Grace & Mona . As we were leaving, we noticed vehicle after vehicle pulling into the location next door, and was told that LOST was there filming. As stated before on the blog, Rick and I are huge fans of LOST (can't wait for the new season!) and this made our already happy day even better.
Holly and Paul's wedding cake will be up on cakelava.com soon, along with many other new cakes done in the past month.
