Kapow, Thwack, Christina and Jason's Superheroes Wedding Cake
Christina first contacted us to make her wedding cake back in January when she and her fiance Jason were stationed in Iraq. She told us that Jason was a big fan of Captain America and this was something she wanted incorporated into their cake, possibly as a groom's cake. When they returned to Hawaii from Iraq in the summer, we met with the couple and it was decided at the meeting Rick would design a Superheroes themed wedding cake, with a custom figure of Christina as Wonder Woman and Jason as his favorite Superhero, Captain America. We were all excited about the idea and the couple absolutely loved Rick's design when they saw the sketch. The couple gave Rick carte blanche on the design and his idea to create a backdrop of a metropolis in the cake. Christina and Jason are a couple of hipsters and wanted to do it Old School, which was perfect for us, because we're Old School too. The couple hired a wonderfully artistic photographer Christen Vidanovic, of Nineteen Owls Photography to capture their wedding day. For a non-traditional couple like Christina and Jason, Christen was a fantastic match and we can't wait to see her images! The wedding and reception took place at the beautiful and lush Haiku Gardens last Friday. Just as they went unconventional for their wedding cake design, so were the flavors of their wedding cake. They chose our super delicious Local Kine Special and Kona Toffee Crunch flavors, to serve their guests. Hopefully Christina and Jason, our Superheroes had one fabulous day!
