Been Around The World Cupcakes...!

been around the world and i i i...

70th birthday celebration! world cake and cupcakes

lemon frill and buttermilk vanilla cupcakes

A wonderful Coco Cake cupcake and cake-topped tower for my sister's father-in-law! Mr.Cole turned 70 and to celebrate, his family threw him a lovely party! Mr.Cole loves to travel, and his goal is to completely travel the world and visit each continent by air, land and sea. Pretty amazing! I made buttermilk vanilla cupcakes with light blue tinted vanilla buttercream, and Lemon Frill cupcakes-- lemon cupcakes with lemon creamcheese frosting! Everything was matchy matchy in green stripes, blue plaid and bright blue mini cupcake liners! I made flags for each city Mr.Cole has visited and with the help of my geographically inclined husband Rich, created the world globe cake out of fondant! Thanks Richie for your help, as usual! xo

I am an extremely lucky person because I really have gotten to see the world--family trips to China and Hong Kong as a young girl, a trip to Japan to visit my sis and my one of my besties Tara, a trip to Europe touring and playing music in a huge double decker bus that had 15 bunks, touring North America playing music many times with friends... sailing in the British Virgin Islands on our honeymoon...

The world still boggles my fragile little mind. I like the fact that the blogging world has given me internet friends from all over the world! Glimpses into people's lives and tons of inspiration in Australia, the UK, Singapore, Greece, all over the States of course, other cities in Canada including Toronto and Montreal and even people in my own city I have met through my blog and my cupcakeing! If you haven't said hi before in my comments, please do so, and I would love to know who you are and where you are writing from!

and... a Happy Happy 70th birthday to Mr.Cole! He is pictured above with Mrs. Cole and the newest addition to their family, granddaughter baby Kensie!

Great work Lyndsay. How did you bake a round "globe" cake???

thank you rich trawick!!

hi dad!! thanks!! i used a "sports ball" pan that is round, and then frosted the two sides together to form a 3d shape! hopefully my next attempt at using the pan will make it more "round!"

Lyndsay, you did such a great job on this cupcake tower! I love the globe up top, and all the cupcakes underneath match so perfectly, I really love your blue plaid liners!!
Blogging really does bring people from around the world together, I really enjoy having blogging friends from many different countries too!

Wow! Thats very cute! I wouldnt even try to attempt something quite so extravagent, its really pretty! I did have a try at a sphere which I covered with buttercream, and it seemed that the easiest thing was to start with a regular cake made from circles, then I carved it into a sphere.

Coco Cake Land said...

jennywenny, great tip-- start with regular cake and carve it! :) thank you!!

Your blog inspire me very much, and I have finally found myself a hobby that I can enjoy right here at home:)

The evenings can be a bit slow, now that I have become a single mum to my 3 year old.

So thank you very much, and please keep up the great work:)

Love from Tromsø, Norway <3
