It's All About the Weddings
Hope you all had a nice Labor Day weekend. Labor Day weekend for us means we labor just as hard, if not harder than we usually do, we'll book well in advance and the events will be weddings. This weekend was all wedding related cakes, whether it was the football stadium groom's cake, which we'll share this week, or a couple's 10-year wedding anniversary cake. It's all about the weddings! No complaints here, we love our wedding clients, and also got to catch up with a number of friends and enjoy a BBQ. All in all, a great weekend!
Rick spent the early part of the weekend busting his you-know-what. The stadium groom's cake took a significant amount of time, but we were very pleased with the results. The sea glass and shells wedding cake shown above was designed for Monica and Arin, a sweet couple who were married in Waikiki on Saturday night and had a surprise groom's cake on Friday night at their rehearsal dinner. Monica and Arin left the design of the cake up to Rick. He drew inspiration for the beach-themed wedding cake from a glass mosaic frame Monica brought with her to our design meeting, along with their invitation which had seashells on it. Using their wedding colors Rick designed their striking beach themed cake. It was gorgeous and textural in person and we found out the couple loved it too. The day after their wedding, Monica and Arin sent us a Thank You note:
Dear Sasha and Rick--
Just a quick note to tell you how much Arin and I and all our guests LOVED your cakes!!! EVERYONE was soooo impressed with both of them!! You really made our rehearsal dinner and wedding so special!!! And Arin was sooo surprised with the grooms cake!! (it also helped me win over one of his toughest critics ;) So THANK YOU for everything!!!
Monica and Arin!!! :D
Working with Monica and Arin was such a pleasure and we want to give them our best as they embark on a new life together!
Join us tomorrow as we share Arin's groom's cake. This distinguished piece was right on target!
