Oh this blue whale cake and matching red lobster cupcakes turned out soooo cute… I was so happy with them!! The blue whale is a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, and the cupcakes are buttermilk vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream… !! My good friend Cindy Mochizuki, a truly excellent Vancouver artist working in multimedia projects and illustration, threw the most amazing seafood themed party for her boyfriend Marc’s birthday. The theme was fish but you also had to dress up as a fish… ! Cindy sent me a really cute drawing she made of a blue whale and lobsters to be turned into some cake party times. The party itself was super awesome… fresh sashimi prepared by Cindy’s dad, daikon and nori salad with sesame dressing, shabu shabu with tofu, pork and chicken, lovely cheese, sake, lobster flown all the way from New Brunswick by Marc’s family!! Pretty cool!!!
Sadly, I did not have time to make a costume. I know, super lame, especially because I LOVE dressing up for stuff like this… but when I got to the party Cindy let me wear her big round tako yaki (octopus fritter) hat so all was well!!!
