A birthday cake for someone not unlike myself....ie. a Shop-A-Holic!! Here is a 6 layer red velvet cake with cream cheese icing- designed to look like a Holt Renfrew shopping bag- in a slightly lighter pink :)
Here is a wee cake for a super sweet customer of mine- she wanted a little cake for a special night out, honoring her mother who recently passed. A lilac ribbon to represent all cancers, and a little yellow daffodil to top it off.
I hope it was a heart warming night, with wonderful memories to reflect on :)
What a great night on Tuesday at Coquitlam Centre for Unwrapped - lots of food & wine to sample, as well as amazing sales on at all of the shops. Even the beloved Trevor Linden stopped by to check it out, and sign some autographs!
On my end, I prepared cake pops, mini cupcakes, sugar cookies, shortbread, peppermint bark, choc dipped marshmallows, and whoopie pies for sampling. Rather than go with the traditional red & green Xmas colors, I opted for silver with blue accents- I think it turned out great!
Thanks to my friends & family for their support- they are so great at showing up for me, and its great having the extra hands to pack up at the end of the night :) My husband and I also took advantage of the photos with Santa by donation- I will be sure to post that pic when it resurfaces amongst my event supplies!
Here's some info off their event page, which you can also view here.
During this four-hour event, shoppers like yourself will take advantage of one-night-only special discounts and offers from participating retailers, get a sneak-peek at hot winter fashion trends, groove to festive tunes and seasonal entertainment, indulge in food, treats and tastings from local area restaurants and businesses, get Santa photos and gift wrapping (by donation), have a chance to win fabulous grand prizes, door prizes, gift baskets and gift certificates (over $19,000 in total prizes!), and be amazed and “surprised“ throughout the night! Unwrapped will once again be a shopper’s paradise, a fun-filled night out and, most importantly, a community gathering like no other.
You can pre-purchase your $10 tickets from the participating charities, or at the Customer Service Desk at Coquitlam Centre.
Or you can purchase them at the door the night of!
To conclude their series of shopping parties across Canada, the Yaletown Mavi Jeans held their shopping party on November 4th from 6-9pm.
Their guests could take advantage of 25% OFF their entire purchase, as well as Robert Mondavi wines served up by bartenders provided by Eight6ix Network, desserts provided by yours truly, and music provided by DJ Sincerely Hana.
It was a great night of shopping, wine, desserts and music! The swag bags were also fabulous, and I was able to grab one for myself. I totally scored with a Katy Perry Cd, iPod case, and some other goodies!
Here are some great pics from the night, provided by the lovely, and talented Andrea Gurniak Photography!

As I mentioned the Tiffanys theme just never gets old- its so girly and cute!
Here are some special sweet sixteen sugar cookies ordered by Harj for her daughter last weekend. They are a standard sugar cookie with buttercream icing and fondant on top.
My bff Ange ordered this cake for her Grandma who turned 93 over the weekend! She is also an avid Mahjong player, and had a blast with this cake- apparently she was rolling the sugar dice around the dinner table!
This cake is three layers of classic vanilla cake filled/iced with vanilla Swiss meringue icing.
The Tiffanys' theme just never gets old; Emelin ordered this little goodie for a girlfriend of hers! Here is a 4" round chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream & choc ganache filling, covered in Tiffany blue fondant, and finished off with white fondant ribbon & sugar hydrangeas.
