Happy Friday everyone! and happy weekend of Valentine's Day-ish love. Love comes in many forms... relationships, friends, family... so treasure those who are close to you. I'm sending posi-love-rays through the internet to you all right now... and with this cake!
I love this cake! Elle Girl Korea contacted little old Coco Cake to make a super cute cake for their 8th anniversary issue, along with a little mini spread on Coco Cake's cake work. Kinda crazy and kinda cool right! Will be the first time I'll see my cakes in a glossy magazine. Ooooh I can't wait to get it in the mail! I'll be monitoring the mailbox come March! And of course I also have my doubts that it will even make it into the magazine?? The cruel hard world of publishing... ^__^ Even if it doesn't make the cut, I still have these ADORABLE pictures to show you!
Since I was making this cake for a photoshoot, I had to give it away ... and what better place to give it away to than my other place of work, Arts Umbrella... where I teach art to crazy little kiddies! Fun! Let's just say surprise cake in the afternoon was received rather well... !
The cake was vanilla with raspberry syrup, and vanilla buttercream. I felt compelled to make the layers different shades of pink... I love the surprise of a white cake, and inside a gorgeous colour spectrum! Going to experiment with some natural colouring ideas. My fellow cakers/readers out there, anyone have any suggestions? Beet juice? Raspberry puree? Anyone had any luck with these?
Happy Weekend to you all! And to local Vancouverites, there's still time to order a special little party box of cupcake delights for your loved ones -- email firstname.lastname@example.org!
