Wednesday, which was also 7-8-09, was one of those oddly wonderful days that come along once in a blue moon and just make you feel good! For starters, we had two of our signature tiki cakes booked on 7-8-09, both for destination weddings with smaller guest counts. Our first bride, Connie picked up her cake as we were not able to deliver it due to our other wedding on the North Shore. Shortly after her wedding cake was picked up, Rick and I had to run some errands and drove past our local grocery store where we spotted a most unusual sight -- THE Oscar Mayer Wienermobile! Right in the heart of Kailua! Now between the two of us, we've lived on the East Coast, and West Coast including Maryland, New Jersey, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Hawaii, and neither of us can remember ever seeing the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile in person. We MUST stop! But first, we must run back and grab our camera, which we promptly did. Luckily upon our return the Wienermobile was still there and we had just enough time to ham it up before we had to leave to drive out to the North Shore for Andrea's wedding, the second tiki cake of the day. Andrea's tiki cake was almost the same design as our "Gwen" cake, which we've blogged about. Rick made a different tiki for the top of Andrea's cake, and it looked spectacular!
