I feel so lucky to have such good people in my life. Erika and Robyn are two of those fine folks, and my friendship with Erika has blossomed like a Georgia O’Keefe flower over the years, fuelled by our mutual love for snacks, celebrity lesbian power couples (K-Stew, Beth Ditto, Cynthia Nixon, Sarah Paulson/Holland Taylor etc etc) and obsessing over names for potential future babies. Erika and Robyn NAILED IT with the name Olympia! Powerful, strong, original PLUS you get OLY out of that for major nickname cuteness/coolness! And Oly is indeed so so cute and cool. Softly ginger haired, with the face of a thousand expressions lit by huge bright long-lashed eyes, she is the joy of her two excellent moms. For her 1st birthday, I made this purple cat cake! Gluten-free, even!

I decided to mix it up with my piping tips, and went for good old classic 1M open star tip, a personal fave, the original swirl tip, the tip that launched a thousand home cupcake businesses. I think this little purple cat cake friend turned out as CUTE AS CAN BE, perfect for an adorable sweet little Oly.

Happy birthday, Oly!! And big congratulations and love to Erika and Robyn for ruling motherhood! xo Lyndsay

    What tip did you use for the “fur” Love it

    1. Lyndsay // Coco Cake Land

      Hi Robin! Thanks. I love my Wilton #234 for making fur, it’s known as the grass tip.

    Love this cake! Can you please tell me how many layers of cake are inside?

    1. Lyndsay // Coco Cake Land

      Three layers, Kristy! Thanks! :)

    Great thank you so much. It just looked different than the rainbow unicorn cake. Most likely the technique in how you pull or don ‘t pull the tip. Thank you so so much. It is beautiful and I can’t wait to buy the book!

      GAHHHH I made a mistake, my apologies, I thought I was referring to a different cake – this tip is Wilton 1M, a classic open star tip! Thanks Robin!! (I’ll email you too to make sure you get this, lol)

    Aaaaaahh!! My daughter is obsessed with cats and we have been going back and forth for weeks on what she wants for her birthday. We stumbled across this gem and she went all starry eyed and now it is a solid yes for the “purple love” cat cake. Tomorrow we hunt for supplies! Thanks for the inspiration!


    I just stumbled upon this too! So cute, well done! My daughter wants this cake as well. So are the ears just fondant and icing? Or is there cake in triangles too?

      Hi! The ears are just fondant! You could also use sugar cookies! Thank you :)
