On Sunday, we were transported to a Wonderful, Magical world and we didn't have to hop on a plane to experience it! The occasion was Joslen's first birthday party at Lanikuhonua, with 200-250 family members and friends there to honor a sweet little girl! They requested a show stopper of a cake that would tie together their "Wonderful World" theme and emphasize Minnie Mouse. They loved Rick's Dr. Seuss themed design and wanted a cake with a similar feel with a giant sculpted piece and wonky tiers. Rick had carte blanche from the couple to make whatever he wanted to, and he was inspired by the theme and bright, fun colors and set out to give Joslen and her parents a cake that would be unforgettable and talked about long after the party was over.
Rick sculpted the Minnie head and the entire cake out of our Guava cake, a delicious, tropical fruity, pink colored cake. All the character pieces on the cake were also made by hand. The cake was gigantic in size and had an even larger presence, which caused the guests mouths to drop when we delivered the cake. The parents were ecstatic with their cake and it looked right at home in their themed environment. We want to thank our couple for bringing us such a fun theme to work with and for making us part of Joslen's big day!
