Gold CANADA Gold!

I couldn't be more excited for the Olympics to finally be here! The olympics have always been a huge thing for me! When I was younger I secretly wanted to be a speed skater, or a cyclist in the summer games. Now you know one of my childhood secrets, haha! This year some of my friends and I headed out to one of our favourite local pubs, dressed in our Olympic/Canadian gear to celebrate! We watched as Jennifer Heil win a SILVER in the Women's Mogul's! We also saw the Women's Hockey team win 18 - zip! Go Canada!

While watching the opening ceremonies I was so inspired, that I had to created some Vancouver 2010 Olympic cupcakes. Super fun to make and I think everyone really enjoyed eating them! Just another way to show support to our Canadian athletes!

Clearly we need a cow bell to celebrate, you always need more cowbell!

Go Cananda!

Those are long-johns people, complete with bum flap!

Happy to be eating Olympic cupcakes! Direct quote from Cody "this is the best cupcake I have ever ate! Best one yet!"

And he would know he's tried a few, thanks Cody!

I know the rings don't overlap but, they were really small and I wanted to be able to see all the colours! You get the idea!


Gold Canada Gold!


They were soooooo much fun to make and I'm very happy with the way they turned out.
More medals to come for Canada, only on day 4!

Back to the Future!

This past weekend I attended a birthday bash, with an amazing theme! It was a 1985 party! I myself was born this year, and I have to say it was a very clever theme for celebrating 25 years of you. I just might have to steal it.......anyways, there was a hitch to this party you had to dress in 80's attire. Personally I had no objections, I'm not ashamed to say it the 80's is one of my favourite decades! You might be asking, "Why?!" Well first of all some of my favourite people were born, many wonderful movies came out like Back To The Future(always had a crush the MJ Fox), Goonies, Flashdance. What else..... Transformers, Rubik Cube, Brick phones, Raspberry Beret, We Built This City, the list goes on and on so many things!

I'll just show you some pictures and don't worry there were cupcakes too. Made by the lovely hostess/birthday gal!

These were the tasty cupcakes! A vegan recipe that was really good, I don't always like vegan cakes but this was nummy. I'll have to get the recipe. You'll notice the one random cupcake in the 5, that was a gift for the birthday girl form my friend Chuck. hehe

I asked what her costume was all about and her response was, "You know when you were little and went to visit your grandma and she always reached into her pocket and pulled out these candies? Thats my costume." My grandpa was the one giving out candies in our family and usually it was Certs.

"Everybody's doin a brand new dance now....." The building was very fitting, didn't even have to decorate!

Excellent costumes!

We went a s Tetris Blocks, thats right!

Thats all for now kid's. Check back soon for Valentine's Day and 2010 Olympic cupcakes! GOLD CANADA GOLD!
