Kensie’s 100 Day Chinese Banquet!

Did you know I am a fourth generation Chinese Canadian? My grandma (Poh poh) even grew up only a few blocks from where I live now in Vancouver! Pretttty cool. Even though my family has been in Canada for generations, we of course still do some Chinesey/superstitious-y things. For my niece Kensie, my parents threw her a 100 day party at a Chinese restaurant here in Vancouver! Red eggs, pickled ginger and a 10 course feast with many family members and friends helped welcome Kensie into the world. My sis Shelley, Kensie’s mama, requested vanilla cupcakes with a pink rosette top, so I made 150+ of these pretty little cupcakes in honour of Kensie!

So many of my favorite people came out to part-ay with us, and above is a selection of pics of some of them enjoying their Coco Cake cupcakes!!

The last pic is of the cutie Kensie herself– chillin’ in her puffy bear suit at the end of the night!
