Bright Celebrations!

This week I had the pleasure of creating wedding cakes and celebration cakes for some of the most colorful clients. Their personalities are larger than life, and so were their celebrations!

Kristen wanted a wedding cake that depicted the time she and her fiance lived in Hawaii. After spending 3 years on the big island, they developed a love for whale watching, kayaking, sea turtles, surfing and spam musabi. What is that you ask? It is spam, made sushi style. A lovely filet of spam (iiick), lays on a pad of sticky rice and is wrapped in a strip of sea weed. Yum......

Their cake featured colorful butter cream beginning with a vibrant green and fading into shades of oranges and yellows. Custom sugar pieces of their favorite things decorated the cake. I know they loved this cake as I got many thumbs up from wedding guests who were beginning to arrive in waiting for the festivities to begin as I was exiting the beautiful Hampton Lake reception venue.

Stacy wanted a wedding cake with just as many pops of color as her wedding reception. Located at The Dunes House in Palmetto Dunes, Stacy's wedding reception was filled with many pops of light pink, hot pink and vibrant orange. From the hanging lanterns and pomanders, to the brightly striped pink and orange lollipop favors, this wedding was very striking! Stacy's wedding cake was a 3 tier cake finished in white butter cream with a light pink fondant band at the base of each tier and a cascade of handmade sugar Gerber Daisies in hot pink and vibrant orange.

James graduates! This cake was created to help James celebrate his graduation from high school. The Hilton Head High School Seahawk celebrated with this grad cap cake. Congratulations James!

Thanks for looking!
