Rufflepuff Buttercream Buddies

A few ruffly cute buttercream cakes with cake banners for you…

A vanilla buttercream cake (I believe the inside layers were a pale lavender…) for little Hannah’s birthday with silvery cute cake bunting.

Dark chocolate mocha cake for my beautiful friend Shira’s 30th birthday (way back in December!)… She is opening a modern vegetarian restaurant here in Vancouver called The Acorn! Can’t wait… it will be a splendid success, as Shira puts her heart and soul into everything she does and couldn’t be a lovelier person or sweeter friend to me.

Rufflepuff jumbotron RAINBOW cake for cute Ava’s birthday – I never got a photo of the insides, sadly – but I ROYGBIV-ed the insides to make rainbow layers with vanilla buttercream. This thing weighed a ton (possibly for real?)… And lookit the cute buttons my friend Phanie made for Coco Cake – so adorable.

That’s all for now cake pals… but I will say that I am now 32 weeks pregnant with my first child… a baby boy on his way! He’s kicking out the jams in my getting-jumbo baby belly as I type this. I imagine this will change my life in every way possible. And I can’t wait to make his very first cake from mama to baby. xoxo

    It kind of blows my mind when I scroll through my zillions of photos of cakes – I think to myself, “I made all of those!? I’m an insane person.

    I LOVE the little flags you used on top of that third off white cake, they;re absolutely adorable!!

    Do you hand make those by hand or do you buy them somewhere?
