Coco Cake Specialty Cupcake Bonkers-ness


Is bonkers-ness a word? The incredible Engine Digital placed a mega-order for 8 dozen specialty Coco Cake cupcakes, as New Years presents to some of their lovely clients! It was a life-affirming order for old Coco Cake-- it showed me that yes, this is a ridiculously fun job and, yes, I really do enjoy using my creative skills in cakeworld. It was so much fun to bring Engine Digital's requests to cake life!(cake life is sort of like thug life). Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and fondant decorations. Below, the outcome, with their ideas... hilarious times...

BC Hydro logo!

BC Hydro "electricity meters", cartoon style, and logo. I did two dozen of these-- thanks RT for helping me place the numbers!


Great Western Brewing: "We heard these go well with beer." -Engine Digital. Fondant peanuts (in case anyone was allergic) and real Pretzels.

Cuteness party snack pack cupcakes! Engine shipped these little guys all the way to Saskatchewan... thinking about my little cupcake buddies traversing along the bumpy and cold road to Sask made me chuckle away...

"Raise Your Hand" campaign-- safety in the workplace! Engine wanted some bloody hands that had NOT practiced safety in the workplace... Hands of fondant with non-pareil candy fingernails, and food colouring for blood...

Hand collection...

Communion wafer-topped blood red cupcakes: for St.Bernadine Mission design firm!

"A tastier way to take your communion wafer." -Engine Digital. Rich and I went on an adventure to find the Church Supplies Store that had these wafers. The friendliest Chinese proprietor man, and half the store is also a trophy engraving shop! Neat-o!


For Coastal Contacts: some face with glasses... I thought they turned out really cute and hilarious with their different colored glasses, little different faces and moustaches and hairdos...! Nerdcakes!

"Who, meee?? Me with the moustache?" Okay, this one looks a bit like Gerry Sung with a curly hairdo (dad, you did have a perm in the 1980s...)

Black lumps of coal for Western Coal Corp!

Thanks so much for such a fun order, Engine!
