Pink Bling Wedding Cake

It's been almost a year since we first met with our bride Porsche to design her and her fiance Micah's wedding cake. We knew from the beginning that she wanted a cake with a high WOW factor and a good dose of bling. In the months to follow, as Porsche and her team of vendors began pulling together the various design elements of the wedding, it became more evident what the cake would look like. The cake would be a pretty pink color with silver accents, unusual shapes of the tiers with the top tier perched on a pole with crystals or some type of bling dangling. When we found out that cherry blossoms figured promiently in the florals and decor, and saw Porsche's exquisite couture wedding gown with its delicate beading, the cake design really came together! As soon as I saw Rick's sketch, I fell madly in love with Porsche and Micah's cake and thankfully so did they. For a cake with as dramatic a style as Porsche and Micah's, we opted to have the cake on a stand with more bling hanging from it. Their wedding cake on the outside was romantic and delicate but on the inside they went with rich, bold flavors, and chose our Peanut Butter Fudgey and Banana Nutella.
Their wedding cake was definitely one of the va-va-voom variety, and it wasn't the only cake. Little did Micah know that Porsche had booked us for a fabulous groom's cake that would draw as much attention as her cake -- the standing Incredible Hulk cake! We couldn't have made two more different cakes side by side, and yet, so perfectly balanced. Congratulations, Porsche and Micah!
A big mahalo to photographer Frank Amodo for his amazing image of the cake!
Aloha, 'til next time!
