Purple Is The New Pink: Pink Heart Cake!

purple and pink ruffle heart cake

It never occurred to me until recently that KIDS read my website.

This photo made me realize this:

6 year old Hazel doing some deep-scrolling on Coco Cake Land, “choosing” cakes for both her mom and herself! CUTE! (Also, eating a poached egg!)

Hazel’s mama is the very talented Katie of Window Community Art Shop - a social enterprise art and craft showcase in Vancouver’s downtown eastside! Katie is an awesome seamstress and one of Vancouver’s coolest mamas. Since I SUCK at sewing, we often trade! Cakes for sewing!!

Katie made me these really amazing coral and grey triangle pennant garlands for my cousin’s upcoming wedding – and in exchange I made lil Hazel this perfectly ruffly pink and purple heart cake! It’s like Upper and Lower Canada! Bartering system is alive and well! Beaver pelts and maple syrup!
