The cake was designed to work chronologically with the uniting "road" being the iconic and super curvy Lombard Street in San Francisco. Adam and Allison were depicted near the bottom of the cake, on the start of their path -- Allison as a chef's toque and Adam represented by a surfboard. Both Hawaii and Italy are shown here. Adam was originally living in Hawaii attending a University here and Allison was studying abroad in Italy. They met at the Metreon theater in San Francisco, spent time together living in San Francisco and then got married at City Hall. Our couple was already married when they booked their wedding cake but was planning a wedding on Oahu where their family and friends could be a part of their vows and ceremony. Their life in San Francisco made up the majority of this cake. At the very top was Australia where the couple plans to live together.
Rick spent many hours carefully drawing and painting every building and detail. Considering the other cakes he was working on for the weekend which also demanded a high level of artistry, I was truly amazed at what Rick accomplished over the course of a week! You can check back on our blog throughout the week to see some of these cakes.
When Allison and Adam chose their cake flavor, Hawaii Five-0, they had no idea how appropriate it would be at their wedding venue. The private estate where they were married on Friday night is also "home" to one of the new "Hawaii Five-0" TV show characters, and they regularly film there. What a coincidence! Congratulations to Allison and Adam!
