What is Build-A-Cake?!

On August 25th 2015 I went to my friends birthday party and made a cake.  Nat and I used to run a cake business, but it was mostly sculpted fondant cakes, which were all the rage at the time.  This one was different than any I had ever made.  The bottom layer was a peanut butter cheese cake and the top two layers were double chocolate. Yum.

 I've The party was outside  at Christie Pitts, where we brought blankets and treats and watched an outdoor screening of Mean Girls. The cake was MASSIVE. Way too big for just our friends, so the birthday girl started serving it to all the people in the park.  Everyone was so grateful and loving the it! Cakes are an incredibly magical thing that never fail to make people happy. Simple as that.
Shortly after I decided to start selling these cakes as part of The Party Parade blog. The process of ordering one is easy.  If you live in Toronto and want to build your own cake for your next celebration, shoot me an email and I will send over a form to fill out.

Here are a few sweet words from Build-A-Cake customers! (insert heart face emoji)

We are just back from the cottage.  I’ve been meaning to send you a note to thank you for the amazing cake.  Not only was it over the top beautiful, but equally delicious.  You obviously use “butter” and other great quality ingredients.  I’m looking forward to another event with your signature cakes. 

Hi Mercedes, thank you for creating such an amazing cake for Shaan's 1st birthday.  It was perfect and a great hit!  We received lots of comments and we've referred you to others.  
Thank you again for taking care of the sweets and flowers - everything was so beautiful and delicious! The cake made quite a stir when we put it out! Guests ran towards it to take so much photos it was insane.

Also our Caterer (Presidential Gourmet) from the event was freaking on your sweets...

Not only was it the best looking cake I'd ever received but it was amazingly delicious as well! While I may have eaten more than a healthy share, thank you for making my birthday that much more special.

Mercedes! You outdid yourself! Thank you so so much for this beautiful cake. Everyone was in awe!



Sudio Wireless Earphones

So Mercedes and I LOVE music. Like, love. Our Daddy used to play the drums and piano every night for us, and we grew up having dance parties with our Mom and other sister Bianca on the daily. Mercedes would be the more sophisticated music listener, who likes and knows most genres of music. Mercedes is also a freakin amazing singer, it's one of her many talents. I on the other hand, could listen to 90s hip hop, Drake or the Beibs and be happy.  Ellia and I have our nightly dance party to some TSwift or Katy Perry, or since she started kindergarten, O Canada and some Star Spangled Banner on repeat.

Mercedes and I both got a pair of SUDIO Wireless Earphones and we are seriously loving them a lot! They came all the way from Sweden, Mercedes got white and rose gold and I got the pink and gold, obviously! The design is awesome and the sound quality is excellent, plus they are super light weight and wireless with 8 hours of freedom, so they are perfect for when we are working out, cleaning the house or having a solo dance party. I even wear them when I am working in Starbucks, or watching Netflix while the husband is sitting right beside me watching the hockey game! They come with a leather carrying case, which is great for me to throw in one of my giant bags and for Mercedes to throw in her backpack, because that girl does not own/carry a purse. We've also been known to be working in the same room, both with our earphones on, probably singing & dancing to different tunes...we are super cool, we know.
