Saanich Fair Kid’s Cake Decorating Competition! Saanich is in Victoria BC, which is on Vancouver Island. There are lots of farms […]
My friend Helen sent me this hilarious link to the game “Pizza Party”. Doesn’t that look like the worst game ever? So boring!!! What a catchy song can do for marketing, I tell ya… but admittedly a pizza party is my favourite kind of party because I loooove pizza! Gorgeous and vibrant Rita had her […]
Super cute Adele from Dace (incidentally one of my favorite Vancouver clothing brands) ordered a hilarious cake for her boyfriend Ryan’s birthday bash: a fish cake on a platter complete with lettuce and tomatoes, as Ryan is very allergic to the real thing! This fish cake stressed me out beyond mental reason– I think I […]
A shout out to the best parents in the world: Gerry and Linda Sung! Forty years ago today they were married in Vancouver at a church on Oak Street. They had a huge reception at the Westin Bayshore (back when they still had Trader Vic’s restaurant!), then, the next day, an additional 500-guest Chinese reception […]
Taste Of Berlin: Wiener Time! Wonderful Berlin, Germany. Packed with sordid history, high fashion, excellent Turkish food, major art, gorgeously green in Spring and Summer, 70 cent beer at the corner store, delightful cheeses and the best hearty, grainy bread… While in Berlin on our recent trip to Europe, we stood in a large line […]
Dankuvel! My hubby and I just returned from a bonkers trip to Amsterdam and Berlin, where we visited some awesome friends, and awesome cousins for a real trip to remember. Food mania! The main tourist area of Amsterdam is what I christened to be the “munchie capital of the world”… all the junk food you […]
Take a little look at these nutty-faced Sesame Street themed cupcakes for a birthday party. Cookie Monster, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch and Ernie! Cookie Monster is totally my fave Sesame Streeter so I was very excited to make him! Using my “hairy frosting tip”, I created a fuzzy looking Cookie Monster. Using fondant and chocolate […]
Okay. This cake KILLED ME with cuteness while making it. I was chuckling away like a nutbar, especially when I did the finishing touches of orange vanilla buttercream mini-beard and half moustache to this cutie cat. The amazing Kathy Slade commissioned me to make a likeness Lemon Love cake out of her dear kitty Harold, […]
Totoro cupcakes! Insane because I went a little insane making these crazy guys. They were a bit on the labour-intensive side but I just love love loved how they turned out!!! And the sweetest thing in the world happened… Tina, the awesome woman who ordered them for her sister’s birthday, gave me a PRESENT… a […]
Fun fun times! Moishe, the yellow eyed monster dude from “Where The Wild Things Are“, was the request for today’s cake of the day. Chocolate cake with peppermint buttercream covered in fondant, and Coco Cake’s rendition of Moishe’s hilarious face. To make Moishe, first I baked, cooled and frosted (with peppermint buttercream) a 7 inch […]
Imagine a fuschia pink feathered bird in a tropical setting, with long legs and a funny beak. Now imagine that same bird hanging around at a Chinese restaurant having Dim Sum. Flamingo on Cambie Street in Vancouver… a sparkly sign; tanks of live fish, elastic banded brown lobsters and spidery, spindly King Crab; pink tablecloths, […]
I made these cutie fondant bunny cupcakes and matching grassy green buttercream and candy egg topped cupcakes for Easter fun times! Using edible markers reminds me of my old cartoon drawing days! Pretty fun!

Ooooh I loved doing this event! A wonderful book called Vancouver Matters held its book launch at the Charles H Scott Gallery at Emily Carr University. An amazing exhibit by Germaine Koh was happening at the same time, an installation of a fallow urban lot transplanted into an art gallery, complete with insects, growing greenery, dandelions […]
