Happy Tuesday, friends!
Remember the ninja cake (my 2nd video post) I wrote a few months ago? My friends from Buffalo came over to Toronto to celebrate two special birthdays at one of my favourite Japanese restaurants — Takara Bune. And not only did they come alone, they brought THEIR friends from NYC! All this for cake and sushi! I am so honoured
Winnie ordered her good friend Anna’s cake and she told me that she loved shopping, money and handbags. And lots of money. She kept emphasizing that So I made her a cake with a red hot Birkin bag with lots of money flowing around it.
I really love the red + purple combo. It screams bold and SEXY and I love how it looks. I also wanted to try out a pearl lace texture on the cake and although it was time-consuming, I enjoyed cutting the flowers out and sticking them together like a puzzle.
At the restaurant they were sitting at the end of the table and the white gold sparkles on both their cakes glistened in the subtle lighting and I felt like a proud parent watching her kids perform at a school concert. Weird comparison, I know… but that’s how I felt! After we had lunch, we unanimously decided that we were too full for cake so they would bring the cakes back to the states. Andy was driving and when he hit a bump, Anna yelled, “Hey careful! My Birkin bag is in the back!” Haha… so silly These are the moments I cherish the most–my friends (and some new friends) driving 9 hours from NYC and 2 hours from Buffalo just to have cake. It doesn’t get much better than that! And after they got home, I got a text message that said that both cakes made it back in one piece and they both didn’t want to cut it. Ooh, they travel well too! I was so proud of them
