Emily and Jonathan's Wedding Cake
We've been loving the diversion over the past week with the interviews, but ultimately it's all about the cakes and our portfolio has been quickly accumulating with new designs to share. Some of our favorite new cakes are being featured in upcoming issues of Cake Central Magazine, which we're very excited about! Since the content in the magazine must be fresh, never-before-seen designs, it's something for all of us to look forward to!
The month of July -- you mean it's not over yet?? -- was filled with weddings and an opportunity to work on some awesomely unique designs! Rick and I fell in love with Emily and Jonathan's wedding cake, shown above. While many were watching fireworks, enjoying barbecues and celebrating, we spent our Fourth making a 3-hour delivery out to the North Shore of Oahu, to the Loulu Palm Estate for Emily and Jonathan's wedding. The wedding was a gorgeous affair coordinated by Laura Lewis of Parasol Events and floral and decor by Yvonne Design. Everything was just perfect and their cake really complimented the decor which had a vintage/rustic feel to it.
Rick designed Emily and Jonathan's cake with their colors and rustic, elegant vibe of the wedding in mind. He wanted the cake to stand as its own unique piece, to have it compliment but not necessarily match exactly the components of the wedding. He decided on 4-tiers, with unusual shapes, large polka dots and a large handcrafted flower placed on the side of the cake. It was a gorgeous design and full of flavor -- three different flavors for their guests to enjoy. Congratulations to Emily and Jonathan! We enjoyed spending our Fourth of July with you!
We'd love to hear how you spent your Fourth of July. Were you baking, delivering cakes, spending time with family, watching fireworks? We hope it was one fabulous day!!
