Hello there, cake pals! Thank you for visiting Coco Cake Land. My name is Lyndsay and I’m the lady hanging out behind the scenes of this one-woman-cakesplosion. I’m a self-taught baker as well as a blogger, freelance writer and photographer. I live amongst the mountains and ocean (okay, and some garbage) in my hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with my husband and son. Lately I’ve been experimenting with plant-based baking, which I’m super excited about!
My cake book is here! Coco Cake Land: Cute and Pretty Party Cakes to Bake and Decorate published on August 14th 2018 by Roost Books, available where all fine books are sold! I’m currently working on a few more cookbook proposals. Stay tuned!
I was named Yahoo Food’s Blogger Of The Year! Neat-o!!! My work has also been featured via Teen Vogue, Oprah.com, Buzzfeed, among many others! :P Included in this great list of Buzzfeed’s 30 Best Food Instagram Accounts You Should Be Following!
What is Coco Cake Land?
Coco Cake Land is a modern cake and dessert blog where I share beautiful cakes, original cake tutorials, party DIYs and dessert recipes with a strong focus on visuals! You’ll also find a few snippets of my life beyond cakes – family stuff, and inspiration. In 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and finished active treatment in May 2016. My prognosis is good and I am feeling pretty good about life, and cake!
Here are some example posts of the kind of stuff I do:
A popular post around these parts is this Peanut Butter + Jam Chocolate Cake Recipe!
Several years ago I created this Hungry Caterpillar Cupcakes Cake and it’s still a popular little guy.
I like buttercream piping a LOT!

What is your education background?
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Women’s Studies and Film Studies, and a subsequent Bachelor of Media Arts degree in Integrated Media where I focused on film, video and music. I’ve always loved cakes though – but never imagined it would become my job, even though I always dreamt of being the cake decorator at Dairy Queen! (I still kind of want that job.)
Can I still order a cake?
Who designed your blog?
My genius friends Chris and Lori. Chris also rips it mega hard on guitar and Lori is a mentally talented photographer. Hire them. Your site will look so pretty.
