Rocky's Sprint Car Groom's Cake
Happy Monday Everyone! Before we get into today's post, we want to thank all of you who took the time to cast your vote for your favorite couple to be our December Featured Wedding. We are pleased to announce that couple #4 Leslie and Sam, won by a landslide and will be our December Feature! Congratulations to Leslie and Sam and also their awesome photography team at Bianca Photography who we had to pleasure to work with on another wedding over the weekend. Looking forward to those images too!
Today's post we're dedicating to our good pal Liz in North Carolina. Liz has been a diehard supporter of cakelava since our humble beginnings, and claims she is Rick's biggest fan. Liz spent a number of years working for Weddings By Grace & Mona, one of the premier wedding coordination teams in Hawaii and has since relocated. On Saturday, one of Liz's couples' Leslie and Rocky were married, in an extravagant wedding for their 400+ guests out at Lanikuhonua. Their fabulous purple and checkerboard event with a racing car theme was full of bling -- crystals everywhere! We made two cakes for the couple, a purple 5-tier wedding cake and a very special Sprint racing car for Rocky's groom's cake. We want Liz to know we were thinking of her and that the wedding was a huge success thanks to Mona's crew! Since we had to run off to another wedding immediately after, we weren't able to shoot many photos to share with all of you, but here's a small taste, just a teaser really, til we get the professional photos from their photographer. Special thanks to AJ, at Weddings by Grace & Mona for providing us with a few photos from the event!
Liz, these are for you!

A giant Ice Patron sculpture! There is SO much more I wish I could share, but it will have to wait for pro photos.
'til tomorrow ... Aloha!
