piping buttercream onto cake - Coco Cake Land

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 our toddler son.

I was named Yahoo Food’s Blogger Of The Year! Neat-o!!!

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 I am still going through treatment  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! 

I made cakes to commemorate the Women’s March!

Several years ago I created this Hungry Caterpillar Cupcakes Cake and it’s still a popular little guy.

I taught an ANIMAL CAKE CLASS for Craftsy! Read about the experience here. It’s super cute and I’m pretty proud of it – In the class, I teach 5 of my animal cake designs.

I’ve written a lot about my experience with breast cancer, even as told through cakes – like this boob cake post, and this Fuck Cancer cake post.

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.)
