Inga and Dylan's Wedding Cake
In the past we called the month of May "May-hem" and this year is no different. If we're not working on a cake, we're heading to deliver one, or two or three of them. It's constant, a bit chaotic at times, but we're getting used to it and everything has gone smoothly all month. With all the events, we're quickly accumulating a ton of photos of new cakes to share, and now we just need to carve out a little time to post them.
Inga and Dylan were married the weekend before last at the Waikiki Marriott Resort & Spa. Their colors were a dark chocolate brown, champagne and a tropical green. They had a stylized orchid motif used throughout the wedding, which we also incorporated into their wedding cake. Using the orchid as a dominant feature, Rick designed Inga and Dylan a cake in their wedding colors that had the dramatic, unique element they were looking for. It was a labor intensive design with the cymbidium orchids carved into the icing, all done freehand without stencils. Time consuming for sure and breathtaking once completed! Their cake looked right at home amongst the tall orchid centerpieces and motif used throughout the room. For the inside of their cake, they went with fruity, rather than chocolate flavors and selected our Guava Lava and Strawberries Chantilly to serve their guests. Congratulations to Inga and Dylan!
