Sweet Sixteen









Man. 16 was a looong time ago for Coco Cake sole proprietor L.K.Sung. Halve my current age and you won't get to 16. Close, but not quite. When I turned 16, my sisters and parents threw me a surprise party. I likened myself as someone pretty hard to trick back when I was 16 and too smarty pants for words (classique teenaged Twilight style) but they all tricked me prettttty pretttty good! My party was at a now-defunct place on West Broadway here in Vancouver called the Bel-Air Cafe. Pretty sure it was a milkshake and burgers-type place, my favourite kind of spot. Tons of my friends were there and walking in and seeing everyone and hearing SURPRISE was just about the weirdest thing-- so surreal! Definitely thought I was dreaming. So long ago, yet not so long ago... sigh. Anyhoo...

For Moneeka's 16th birthday, sis Maneesha contacted me to make a custom stand and hot fuschia pink buttercream and chocolate buttercream topped vanilla cupcakes in black liners for her younger sis. I thought everything turned out beautifully and I just love the contrast of the hot fuschia pink and black! Happy 16th Birthday to Moneeka, and her older sis Maneesha (found out from her dad that it was her birthday too)! Thanks again for your order!

Hey thanks Britt! I totally agree. Super nice and strong contrast colours-- would look super gorgeous on a tiered stand with all rosette tops... :)
