Welcome to another episode of COOKIE PROBLEMS! I have a cookie problem and it grows and grows. Thankfully I’ve been ripping it at the gym across the street from my house lately so I’ve been whittling away at the old post-partum baby weight. No biggie though!!! Eating delicious cookies is much more important, right? :) […]
I’ve had such a fun summer so far… how about you? Fun cake orders, super fun styled shoots for Poppytalk and You Are My Fave, freelance writing about cakes for Craftsy, and swimming and enjoying the sun with my little son Teddy as much as possible! Oooh Teddy turns 1 on August 20th… I can hardly […]
Gosh, I am really pumped to share with you these cool photos I took of Imm Living’s amazeballs cake stands in celebration of their five year anniversary. They are a Canadian design company from Toronto creating “modern cultural artifacts” and their work is pretty, pretty sweet. I am in love with these animal head cake […]
Some recent cakes from Coco Cake Land, all instagrammed out!
Whaddya mean, you’ve never seen a cactus CAKE with a MOUSTACHE? Ya from planet MARS or something?? Just kidding. I know I’m crazy. But Steve was just crazy enough to agree to this hare-brained cake idea to surprise his beautiful wife Marissa on her birthday! Cactus cake with moustache. Now THAT is true love forever. […]
Happy summer, my beautiful Coco Cake Land friends! I just came back from two weeks on a tiny populated gulf island here in British Columbia. I managed to make one cake while I was there, a no sugar, no dairy banana spelt cake for my now 10 month old Teddy to try! Um, it was […]
I love a good black and white colour scheme for a party. It can look totally modern, or in this case: vintage modern! I used a black and white graphic vintage tablecloth from the 1970s (a hand-me-down from my mom) and for display, a cool metal letter E I got from The Land Of Nod. […]
Happy Tuesday! xo Lyndsay
Gosh darn it I do love my dreamy little Instagram app filters. So vintagey and fun and very Coco Cake Land. Which one is your favourite??
From James’s mama Lisa: “His most favourite thing is… orca whales! It is ridiculous how obsessed he is! I’m not sure exactly where this came from but he is cray for orcas! Blue balloons – when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday he told me a blue balloon! Adorbs.” The guy is […]
I was inspired by this beautiful wooden rainbow stacking toy to create a simple rainbow party! Nope, no buckets of crazy colored buttercream or tie-dye cupcake insides or layers of coloured cake here! Just some lovely vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, dressed to impress in every-colour-of-the-rainbow cupcake liners and fashioned with colourful flags. Children’s parties […]
COOKIE! PAINNNNNN! Why aren’t I 600 pounds! COOKIESSSSS How do you elevate the humble little cookie buddy that is the oatmeal raisin cookie? Oatmeal raisin is kind of like the “vanilla” of ice creams. It has this crappy reputation as being a boring flavour, and they have a hard time competing with the classic homemade […]
Gosh, a few years ago I did a baby shower cake for Alice, who was expecting a little one… and now, when the little babe has come out on the other side, I get to do his birthday, too! Lucky! (ps, why did the Doors just pop into my head? Free cupcake for you, locals […]
I kind of just want to cuddle this fluffy pink tiger face and give it a big old squeeze hug! But that’s just not a cool idea! Especially since I have an aversion to food, namely dairy products, on my face. Weird, yes. You won’t see me indulging in a Cleopatra-inspired milk bath. Yuck! Although […]
A little health blast for ya… Yep. You really did read that right. Blender. This is a variation of a fast and funny recipe from the wonderful Canadian cookbook icons The Best Of Bridge. In our family, we grew up on Best Of Bridge recipes…we are children of the 1980s… my mom’s collection of their […]
