Wedding Cake for Animation Addicts


We get our share of unusual requests, and that is of course, what keeps life interesting. Some requests cause us to wonder, "hmm, how do we make that work?" This wedding cake for our two clients obsessed with animation, gaming, and cute characters was one of those situations. Which came first, the request to include their wedding mascot of the cartoon rabbit and turtle or the three character requests, I can't recall, but I do know that marrying them together in cartoon matrimony was going to be tricky. The characters requested were Yoshi the dinosaur from Nintendo's "Yoshi's World" , Cookie Monster and Pikachu. When we met with the couple, Rick explained he could integrate these various characters into the cake. It was going to be cute-sy and kid-like because of the themes, and they were absolutely fine with that. He also planned to make a topper of their rabbit and turtle mascot for the cake. Since animation is all about fun and color, Rick decided to keep this cake in the same spirit and had the different icons associated with each character on wires popping out of the cake. When we delivered their wedding cake a few of the guests came up to look at the cake and thought it matched the couple perfectly, and after meeting the couple, we'd have to agree! Congratulations, Amanda and Chris!

Aloha, 'til next time!

We love that couples are looking WAY beyond tradition for their wedding and bringing us such unusual themes to work with. Never in our wildest dreams did we think we'd "marry" these characters together. Thank you for the compliments!
