Daisy Wedding Green Tea Cupcakes!

Lisa and Brian tied the knot at Seasons In The Park here in Vancouver, with adorable little Felix in tow! Lisa and I knew each other many moons ago when we both powered through some Women's Studies classes together back at the University of Victoria! So lovely to be in touch again. As well, her equally adorable sister is the designer Jean Okada - if you need the world's cutest party dress, you should definitely check out her designs!

I made these cutie green tea cupcakes with blobettes of vanilla buttercream and fondant daisy toppers in the wedding colours of orange and green. Bright, Spring-y, cute and fun! Many sweet congratulations to Lisa, Brian... and Felix!

Party Cat Hungry Caterpillar Strikes Again!

Perry the Party Caterpillar is my latest version of my hungry caterpillar cupcake cake. Emily ordered this little guy for her little cutie Hudson's first birthday party! And the extra special part about Perry the caterpillar is... he's vegan! Yes, 100% dairy and egg free! Dark chocolate cupcakes made up the body, vanilla "butter"cream for the frosting, and the head and mini cupcakes were vanilla cupcakes. Emily's mom Wendy came to pick it up and just loved it when she saw it, yay! And I got a very sweet email from Emily a few days later with this super kind comment:

"I have to say I am very picky when it comes to cake/cupcakes. I am never really a big fan of cake so I figured that I wouldn't eat much of it, which would have been a good thing! But your cake/cupcakes were simply the BEST I have ever had!.... "

So nice!! I had a blast making this guy, thank you Emily for the great order, and glad to hear Hudson had a ball at his 1st birthday bash.

And while I'm at it... thank you to all of you who have made this caterpillar cake and sent me pictures of your results and birthday parties... what fun it is to know that this crazy Coco Cake creation has been the inspiration for so many cute little kiddie's parties. Brings joy to a caker's heart!

See ya soon, blogworld!

Crazy Purple Barney Cake!

Barney had quite his day in the sun in the 1990s, eh? Purple dino power! And Barney is back for another chance to shine on a crazy looking purple buttercream-piped cake. I don't get to make figurines very often so this was a fun little purple dino to create out of fondant. And purple Barney rosette cupcakes to match!

Barney should totally party it up with Grimace, that other purple blobby creature. They could have a purple themed party with all purplish food. Eggplants, grapes, blueberries... a vegetarian feast!

Thanks Amelia for the cute order! ^__^
