Typography Cake Tutorial- I Love You!

Gosh, I've always loved this piping style - good old mini drop star, just filling every inch of a cake creating such a cute and vintage textured look. This cake is a real cute way to send a special message to a special someone! "Say it with cake!"

Find the whole tutorial over at my pal Melanie's blog You Are My Fave!

Happy cakeing!

DIY Wedding Cake + Monogram Cake Toppers

I had a lovely time creating this super cute Do It Yourself Wedding Cake for my awesome (and in real-life!) internet pal Jan Halverson of the amazing design blog Poppytalk! 

Hand cut monogram initial and heart cake toppers, raspberry preserves-filled dark chocolate cake with vanilla dotty-piped pale green buttercream, and all topped with ruffly pretty pink begonia flowers from my own garden. Make this for your best friend's wedding or for your very own nuptials! Making your own sweet and crafty wedding cake doesn't have to be scary, I tell ya! You can use many different types of blooms from your own garden, so long as you've grown them naturally and without chemical sprays - or request unsprayed flowers from your local florist.

Laser-blast on over to Poppytalk for the full tutorial! And check out more of my Coco Cake Land tutorials by clicking right here!

Yay Love!

A Prickly Situation: Cactus Cake

Whaddya mean, you've never seen a cactus CAKE with a MOUSTACHE

Ya from planet MARS or something?? 

Just kidding. I know I'm crazy. But Steve was just crazy enough to agree to this hare-brained cake idea to surprise his beautiful wife Marissa on her birthday! Cactus cake with moustache. Now THAT is true love forever. They are a super cute couple and I loved making this cake. 

Thanks again, Steve... and happy birthday, Marissa!

Happy summer, my beautiful Coco Cake Land friends! I just came back from two weeks on a tiny populated gulf island here in British Columbia. I managed to make one cake while I was there, a no sugar, no dairy banana spelt cake for my now 10 month old Teddy to try! Um, it was gross. I dunno what happened. But that's okay. Because I was on casual times relaxation island with zero percent cares and a hakuna matata attitude. 

Aren't these some lovely cakes? A tiny roundup of some cakes from the recent vaults. 

Hope everyone's well and good! See ya soon!
