We began working with Laressa and Daniel in January of this year for their November wedding. They were referred by people we knew and we wanted to give them the cake of their dreams. They desired to have a cake that was both elegant and unique and would long be remembered by their guests. Laressa and Daniel's wedding colors were blue and white and and Rick drew inspiration for the design from the stylized blue floral motif on their invitation and wedding paperie. Rather than put the pattern on a traditional 3-tier round, he gave the cake a modern, feminine shape with rounded edges and each tier balanced slightly above. Laressa and Daniel were so excited about the cake when they saw their design. I even got a nice call from Stephanie their wedding coordinator shortly before the wedding to work on the cake table. They wanted to have just the right color linen and size for the table. A couple after our own hearts! The table looked perfect! The cake drew a great deal of attention when we delivered it to the beautiful Halekulani resort in Waikiki. We had both the staff and the coordinator of the wedding surrounding the cake table, and some fascinated looks and "What is it?" questions. To which Rick smiled and proudly said "It's a cake!"
Sadly, we did not get a chance to congratulate Laressa and Daniel on the wedding day. We really wanted to. It was a hectic weekend for us and we had to run back to our studio for Rick to work on the U.S. Marine Corps birthday cake for the following day and cakes throughout the weekend.
Shortly after the wedding we received a sweet thank you note from Laressa which included the following:
We just came back from Hawaii and we wanted to send you and Rick a note to thank you for an amazing/tasty cake. Everyone, including the catering folks at the Halekulani, were impressed with the cake. We even took the leftovers to our honeymoon and enjoyed it with coffee and tea.
We wanted to make sure the cake stood out from the white table so Stephanie made the blue table cover with the color of the cake in mind. I am glad you guys thought it was nice :)
You guys are the best!
Congratulations to Laressa and Daniel!
