Laura and Oliver's Wedding Cake


It is not common practice for us to post the previous night's cake on the blog, but when you have one as strikingly bold, funky, hip and over-the-top like Laura and Oliver's wedding cake, we thought it should be shared as soon as possible. We had a lot of fun with Laura and Oliver over the months as we worked with them to find a source of inspiration for their wedding cake. During the design process they mentioned having a funky floral pattern being used in their wedding and one look at it and we said "Bingo!" Rick and I were ecstatic when we saw what the couple had presented it to us. They confidently told Rick to design as he saw fit and the result is above. Laura and Oliver were as smitten with the cake as we were. Their reaction when they saw the sketch:

Hi Rick,

Oh my god we are in LOVE with the design. It is hands down the most beautiful/funky/cool design that we've ever seen. You are amazing!

Rick pulled out all the stops on this one -- a funky custom textured cake topper, bold black and white handpainted print with dark orange accents, and unusual, dare I say, voluptuous shapes that gave a gorgeous movement to the design. We fell head-over-heels, madly in love with this cake and were excited to share it with Laura and Oliver! We can't wait to see photographer Frank Amodo's images of the cake, as we know they will be artful and amazing! The decor on site was absolutely beautiful, and Yvonne Design's team wowed us once again, and the grounds at Lanikuhonua make the perfect backdrop for any event. Congratulations, Laura and Oliver!

Aloha, 'til next time!

Wow! What an amazing adaptation of the Envelopments Kitsch pattern! Great work! How fun to have a cake inspired by the invitations and carry through the whole event like that.

Thank you everyone! ... Tom, We were lucky to have such an inspiring pattern to work from. You guys do beautiful work! Originally, we were headed in a totally different, more elegant and subdued direction with the cake until we saw their paperie and thought, "Yes! That's it!" and Rick knew right away it would look amazing in cake! Thank you, thank you!!
