Lisa & Greg's Hawaiian Themed Wedding cake | Capitol Event Theatre

Yes the beautiful satin white wedding cake has it’s place in elegant wedding cake designs, but it’s not for everyone. Being that I make custom designs that suit each couple’s personality, Lisa and Greg, the bride and groom, were not the average couple. They loved bright colours so much that they used it to celebrate their wedding day at the Capitol Event Theatre on Yonge Street in Toronto. They also had a unique theme of Hawaiian eclectic for their wedding decor, planned and coordinated by Crystal Adair Benning of Distinct Occasions. They really wanted a sassy cake that was nontraditional and had tropical flair for this pumpkin layer cake with vanilla bean butter cream and dulce de leche. This may be a common theme for cakes in warmer parts of the world, but in Toronto not many couples come to me with such a fun and wild theme. So in a way this cake was like a vacation for me.

The base of this vibrant cake was airbrushed with a fading bright pink to orange and then painted with silver polka dots. The mixture of tropical flowers including the large pink sugar  hibiscus complimented with the bamboo gave the right touch of the tropics. For those of you who love interesting and colorful cakes, you should check out the amazing talents of Rick Reichart of Cake Lava from Hawaii.

Sweet Regards to Lisa and Greg. I hope you enjoy your honeymoon in Iceland and thank you for letting me design your colorful cake!

To get such rich orange and pink colours  while cake decorating I used  my favorite compressor and airbrush. Which also makes it fun and a lot quiker then kneading in the color.
